Rovers ease through

Raith made a comfortable passage into the second round of Co-operative Insurance Cup after beating East Fife 4-1.

The hosts wasted no time in stamping their authority on proceedings when they took a sixth-minute lead through Gregory Tade's close-range header.

Second division side Fife were left rocking when Tade struck again just four minutes later, converting Stephen Simmons pass to make it 2-0.

And the onslaught continued when Rovers found themselves three ahead inside half an hour as John Baird finished from 12 yards.

Fife threatened a comeback when they reduced the arrears moments after the restart when Robert Linn curled in a free-kick.

But Jamie Mole ended the prospect of a fightback when he headed home a fourth in the second half to seal the win.

Rovers look to avoid successive derby defeats

Raith will be without defender Mark Campbell and the versatile Dougie Hill for their second Fife derby in a week when East Fife visit Stark's Park for their Co-operative Insurance Cup first-round tie.

The Kirkcaldy men lost 1-0 to Cowdenbeath last Saturday and were then on the end of a 5-0 friendly defeat to Dundee United in midweek, leaving manager John McGlynn with mixed emotions.

He said: "Every time you lose you are disappointed and that disappointment is heightened when it is a derby game.

"The Dundee United game was different as they were awesome, but it was a great exercise."

Starting the cup clash well is key according to McGlynn, who insisted: "We have to be out of the blocks quicker against East Fife than we were against Cowdenbeath."

East Fife have received a triple boost ahead of the encounter with the news John Ovenstone, Stuart Cargill and Lloyd Young have returned to training.

The trio are all in manager Steven Crawford's plans for the short trip to Stark's Park.

Crawford will however be missing recent signing Lee Bryce through suspension and Steven Hislop, who is on honeymoon.

The New Bayview boss is looking forward to the tie, and said: "Our pre-season went well in terms of scoring goals and we carried on like that against Brechin last week, however we need to keep things tighter at the back as Raith have players who can punish us.

"They will be hurting after losing to Cowdenbeath last weekend and will not want to lose another Fife derby so soon afterwards."
