First Team Debuts

Milestones

Injuries and suspension reduced Steve Paterson's selection options and three Skillseekers were in the starting line-up.
In the 13th minute Raith's Steve Tosh replaced the injured Didier Agathe and the substitute nearly made an immediate impact. He spotted Les Fridge off his line and tried a 30 yard lob which dropped just wide. Close to the interval Kevin Byers set up Davide Xausa at the other end but Guido Van De Kamp saved with his legs. Ten minutes after the restart Fridge acrobatically tipped over a Tosh drive. Raith took the lead on the hour mark when Alex Burns found Craig Dargo just onside and he hit it over Fridge. Steve Tosh made it two in 78 minutes when he took a deep Jay Stein cross from the left and scored from 10 yards.
