Raith v Hibernian

Raith boss Ray McKinnon has called on his side to maintain their momentum as they look to reclaim second spot in the Labrokes Championship by leap-frogging Hibernian at Stark's Park.

Raith left it late to see off Alloa last week and will once again be without injured trio Craig Barr (groin), Ross Callachan (shoulder) and Lewis Vaughan (knee).

McKinnon said: "We showed a great deal of desire to keep our good run going and we need that again against a good Hibs side. I watched them win at Falkirk on Tuesday night and they are a good side, however, on our day we can beat them."

Hibernian have no fresh injuries, but while left-back Adam Eckersley played an hour for the under-20s in midweek he is still not ready for the first team.

Hibs head coach Alan Stubbs said: "They have started the season very well and their home form has been very good, they have had five or six wins. We had a tough game against them at Easter Road, which we won 2-0, and I see it as being no different on Saturday."
