Raith hold on to book final spot

Raith Rovers reached the Scottish Challenge Cup final with a 2-1 victory at Partick Thistle.

Partick started well and Reece Cole shot straight at Robbie Thomson before Brian Graham had a goal ruled out for offside.

But it was Raith who took the lead on the half-hour when Kyle Benedictus headed in from a corner.

Thomson had to be alert to keep out efforts from James Penrice and Shea Gordon.

However, Raith doubled their lead in the 74th minute as Regan Hendry turned the ball past Scott Fox.

Substitute Lewis Mansell gave Thistle hope, heading in a Penrice corner six minutes from time, and Mitch Austin hit a post at the death as they almost grabbed an equaliser.
