This was a tight game with few chances. Raith had barely had a shot all game but in the third minute of the eight that were eventually added on, Sam STANTON rifled in a low shot in at the right goalpost to win the match. Easton created the opening picking out the goalscorer on the edge 0f the Pars box and revealing fine footwork to evade the attentions of Fisher before pulling the trigger. It was a cruel outcome and although there was a strong response to snatch an equaliser from a Joe Chalmers corner it would be another defeat.

Raith would admit that it wasn’t their best performance of the season and didn’t give their fans much to cheer but they claimed the three points. Dunfermline remained in eighth place.
