Raith boss looking forward to Fife derby against Dunfermline

Raith Rovers manager John McGlynn thinks rivals Dunfermline were happy to come away with a point against Partick Thistle last weekend as he looks forward to another “big game” tonight when the Fifers meet at East End Park.

The Pars have struggled to get going this season but have shown signs things are started to turn around while Raith have continued to impress under McGlynn as they push for promotion to the Premiership.

After drawing with league leaders Inverness at the weekend, Raith could leapfrog Kilmarnock in second place tonight with a win against the Pars as he insists there’s “everything to play for” with 26 games still to go in the campaign.

“It’s another big game, off the back of Saturday’s big game with Inverness,” the Raith boss said.

“We are on form and Dunfermline have kind of steadied the ship a little by getting a few draws.

“It was probably not a bad point for them either at Firhill, when Partick Thistle scored six in their previous game (against Hamilton Accies). For Dunfermline to get a 0-0, they’ll probably be reasonably happy with that.

“But there’s everything to play for and a long way to go,” added McGlynn. “Regarding us and Inverness, there was no damage done. Only one team, Kilmarnock, won at the weekend, so they jump back into second place. But there was no damage with other teams, so we just take it and move on.”
