Raith Rovers v Dunfermline

Last updated : 01 January 2011 By BBC Sport

Raith will be without striker Jamie Mole, who has returned to Hearts after his loan spell, and injured defender Dougie Hill for the Dunfermline game.Steven Simmons came through a sub's appearance against Falkirk in midweek unscathed and could start, while full-back Craig Wilson is a doubt.

Dunfermline are without the injured quartet of Greg Paterson, Jack Ross, Alex Burke and Steven Bell.

Willie Gibson is suspended so Paul Willis is expected to keep his place.

Raith Rovers manager John McGlynn: "We've had two clean sheets in a row so I'm not contemplating many changes.

"It's been shaping up as pretty much a top-of-the-table clash for a number of weeks now.

"Dunfermline are four points clear, but we have a game in hand so it's all the makings of a great game."

Dunfermline manager Jim McIntyre: "Paul Willis was fantastic the other evening and took his chance to impress me very well.

"We're contenders at this stage, nothing else, and this game is for the same three points as other games are, so there is no point in getting overly excited."
