Declan McManus scored twice as Raith cruised past St Mirren at Stark's Park.

Rovers went in front after 17 minutes when Lewis Vaughan fed the striker, who expertly lobbed Jamie Langfield.

After the break two goals in two minutes sunk the Saints' challenge as Vaughan broke from a corner to tee up Ross Callachan.

McManus intercepted a through-ball ahead of Langfield and left the goalkeeper stranded for Raith's third before Ryan Hardie's consolation.
