Raith Rovers 3-2 Greenock Morton

Ryan Hardie's late winner negated Declan McManus' brace and edged a 3-2 victory for Raith Rovers over Morton.

Rovers defender Rory McKeown put his side ahead after seven minutes with his first goal for the club.

McManus equalised deep in the second half, but the hosts hit back moments later as Aidan Connolly fired home.

McManus found the net a second time with three minutes remaining only for substitute Hardie to hand his side all three Championship points at the death.
