Raith Rovers 0-1 Dundee

Scottish Football League

Jake Hyde scored his fifth goal of the season as Dundee kept up their promotion push by defeating Raith.

The visitors applied the early pressure and Craig McKeown wasted a decent chance after 22 minutes, heading wide from a corner when well placed.

Their pressure paid off 10 minutes before half-time, Nicholas Riley's right-wing cross was met by Hyde's thumping header to give the keeper no chance.

Raith tried to get back into the game, and John Baird's 20-yard piledriver was well gathered by Robert Douglas, but Dundee looked the most dangerous of the two sides, and Ryan Conroy forced a smart save from David McGurn.

Substitute Jamie McCluskey should have made the game safe in the last minute, but headed Conroy's corner straight at McGurn.
