  1. Advantage Raith Rovers

    FT: Raith Rovers 1-0 Hibernian

    This tie isn't over but Raith Rovers are in the driving seat with that goal from Harry Panayiotou. 

    Hibs are sure to give it everything in Saturday's second leg but that could leave them vulnerable at the back and Rovers showed tonight that they are more than up for the fight.

    It promises to be a nail-biter.

    I'll sign off now. Good night.

    FT: Raith Rovers 1-0 Hibernian

    The BBC Sportsound team are puzzled by Alan Stubbs' criticism of referee Kevin Clancy and his assistants. There weren't many contentious moments in the match.

  4. Hibernian manager Alan Stubbs

    Talking to BBC Radio Scotland

    "The first frustration comes from conceding at a set-piece. We lost concentration when we should have dealt with it. The other frustration comes from not taking the chances we had. 

    "The pitch is a leveller, It doesn't suit our style of play but that's not the reason we lost the game. Conrad [Logan] has had one save to make.

    "At this stage of the season, you want the best officials and they have got it horribly wrong tonight.

    "We know what we need to do on Saturday and we'll look to really take the game to Raith. Our home form is very good, so it makes for a rip-roaring occasion."

    FT: Raith Rovers 1-0 Hibernian

    Saturday's second leg is a 12:30 kick-off at Easter Road. Hibs fans may be too nervous for a hearty breakfast before that one. One thing is for sure, the Edinburgh side need to improve their finishing if they are to have a chance of turning this round.

  6. Raith Rovers manager Ray McKinnon

    Talking to BBC Radio Scotland

    "The players dug in and ground out another result. We have a great dressing room full of determined characters. It's just half time and Saturday will be extremely tough because Hibs will throw everything at us."

    "I'm still scratching my head wondering how Hibs haven't won that match," says Richard Wilson on BBC Radio Scotland.

  8. Happy Harry

    FT: Raith Rovers 1-0 Hibernian

    "It's been the year of the underdogs. We've got nothing to lose. If we get promoted, I'm the happiest man alive," says Raith goal hero Harry Panayiotou on BBC Radio Scotland. Have I mentioned he's on loan from new English champions Leicester City?

    "The end product just wasn't there for Hibs," says BBC Sportsound pundit Derek Ferguson. "I think some shooting practice is in order."

  10. Post update

    FT: Raith Rovers 1-0 Hibernian

    How will Hibs be feeling in the dressing room? Pretty sick, I'd wager. They bossed the first half and really should have been ahead but now they are in real danger of a third season in the second tier.

    A wee half-chance for Hibs as the ball falls to Liam Henderson in the box but the substitute can only scuff anxiously at the ball.

    Raith Rovers 1-0 Hibernian

    Lewis Stevenson, who has had a few woeful crosses tonight, suddenly fires in a peach of a delivery - right down the corridor of uncertainty - but there's not a Hibs player in sight.
