Raith Rovers still missing three players ahead of Dumbarton clash

Raith Rovers will once again be without a trio of first-teamers as they return to league action with the visit of Dumbarton.

Craig Barr (groin), Lewis Vaughan (knee) and Ross Callachan (shoulder) are all yet to return from injury as Raith look to put their their midweek cup exit at the hands of Celtic behind them.

Manager Ray McKinnon said: "We may have lost to Celtic however we can move on quickly and positively as the boys played really well.

"Their effort and discipline was fantastic and I am looking for the same again against a Dumbarton side that have quality and experience in their ranks. Having won our last Championship game at St Mirren it would be disappointing not to build on that in our next home game."

Dumbarton have Stevie Ross available and Frazer Wright will step in for the suspended Gregor Buchanan.

Steven Craig is doubtful and Jamie Lindsay remains out following groin surgery.

Manager Stephen Aitken said: "The players earned a lot of credit for their display against Rangers last weekend and deservedly so. It would be terrific to build on that at Raith Rovers. After a disappointing spell our displays against Morton and then Rangers have put us back on track.

"We will need to play well to take something as Raith performed well at St Mirren and then at Celtic with a different looking team which shows the strength in depth that they have."
