Raith came from behind to defeat bottom-club Morton and further ease their relegation concerns.

Rowan Vine put the visitors ahead with a powerful shot, but it could have been 1-1 when Gordon Smith missed from point-blank range.

Greig Spence equalised with the first of two second-half goals, firing home a penalty after Marc Fitzpatrick had brought down Grant Anderson.

His second arrived when he slotted into the bottom left-hand corner.
