Mitch Megginson (8', 50') scored for Cove Rangers.
In their last six fixtures, Ian Murray's Raith Rovers have managed to score a combined total of 8 times - an average number of goals per match equal to 1.33.
Coming into this contest, Raith Rovers are without a home win in the past 9 league matches. They will be so desperate to end this run.
After tasting defeat last time out to Partick Thistle in Championship competition, Dundee will be aiming to make amends here.
For Dundee, the goals were scored by Cammy Kerr (64') and Tyler French (85'). Aidan Fitzpatrick (16'), Steven Lawless (24') and Cole McKinnon (50') scored for Partick Thistle.
Demonstrating their appetite for high-scoring encounters, goals have been scored 23 times in the previous 6 matches in which Dundee have sent out their troops, yielding an average of 3.83 goals each clash. Opposing teams have managed 7 of these goals. Such a pattern isn’t assured to be sustained into this game, of course.

Team News: Dundee
In an otherwise healthy group of players, there is just the one fitness problem for the Dundee gaffer Gary Bowyer to be concerned with. Cillian Sheridan (Achilles tendon rupture) misses out for this game.
We believe that Dundee and Raith Rovers should both be able to score here although it’s hard to pick a clear winner.
Shouldn’t be much in it, and a draw looks quite a realistic result. Our tip is therefore for a hard-fought 1-1 score at the end of the 90 minutes.
