Vaughan boosts Rovers with a double on his return


Raith Rovers moved level on points with leaders Arbroath thanks to a 4-0 Stark’s Park victory over Forfar. However, Lewis Vaughan’s return to action was probably a bigger boost to the Fifers.

The 22-year-old has been absent following a groin operation, but was introduced on 50 minutes with the Kirkcaldy side leading from Kevin Nisbet’s first half goal following a Jamie Bain error. Within two minutes Vaughan scored and he added the fourth after Chris Duggan had lobbed in. The attacker said: “I trained on Monday for the first time in three months and the gaffer stuck me in the squad.

“I had an operation and then a setback that kept me out so I am delighted to be back scoring goals and helping to secure a win.”

Arbroath let two points slip when visitors Brechin hit back from the loss of two early goals to draw 2-2.

ensured the points were shared.

Airdrie enjoyed a 2-0 home win over Stranraer who finished with ten men. Leighton Mcintosh opened the scoring soon after the restart and Joao Victoria wrapped things up after Andrew Macdonald had been dismissed.

Dumbarton are still struggling to adjust to life in League 1 as they lost from a winning position for a second week running when they went down 2-1 at Stenhousem­uir.

Bobby Barr’s early goal for the Sons was cancelled out by Seb Ross with Conner Duthie sneaking in unmarked to grab the winner.

East Fife picked up their first win with a 2-0 win at Montrose thanks to Ross Davidson’s drive from 20 yards on 19 minutes and Jonathan Court’s tap-in shortly afterwards.
