Raith Rovers have been hit with a de­fen­sive in­jury cri­sis ahead of Satur­day’s Scot­tish Cup clash with El­gin City, writes Derek Miller.

Man­ager Ray McKin­non has re­vealed the for­mer Celtic de­fender has in­jured his ham­string and is un­likely to be fit for the trip north. Rovers al­ready have mid­fielder Iain David­son fill­ing in at cen­tre-half to help plug the gap left by Thom­son’s ab­sence at right-back and would be left with just two recog­nised de­fend­ers if Tosh­ney is also side­lined.
