Raith Rovers 2-1 Dumbarton

Raith Rovers held off Dumbarton's late comeback to secure victory in the Scottish Championship.

Ryan Conroy's penalty following Chris Turner's foul on Grant Anderson gave Raith the lead.

Anderson soon added his own name to the scoresheet with a header, Calum Elliot providing the cross.

Mitchel Megginson scored what proved to be a consolation for the visitors, with his next effort crashing off Raith Rovers' crossbar.
