Raith Rovers 1-0 Dumbarton

Lewis Toshney's second-half header earned a win for Raith in a closely-fought encounter with Dumbarton.

Both sides wasted good chances in the first half to take the lead.

However, the deadlock was broken when the visitors failed to deal with a free-kick, and Kyle Benedictus' cross found the head of Toshney.

Kevin Cawley almost provided a perfect cross for Eamonn Brophy to finish but the striker could not get to it as Raith held on to claim the win.
