Alloa Athletic 0-1 Raith Rovers

Substitute Grant Anderson struck late in the match to give Raith Rovers a solitary-goal win at Alloa Athletic.

Alloa had chances to break the deadlock in the first half but could not find a way past goalkeeper Kevin Cuthbert.

Both sides created further opportunities in the second period and it was Raith who got the breakthrough.

Having come on to replace James Craigen just a minute earlier, Anderson rifled in the rebound after Andy McNeil had kept out Mitch Megginson's effort.
