Raith Rovers 1-2 Ross County


Two identical goals inside two minutes from Alex Keddie earned Ross County a Challenge Cup win at Stark's Park.

The big defender rose unchallenged at the back post to head home a corner on 52 minutes and did the same soon after.

Raith Rovers hit back when Graham Weir blazed in a fine strike from the edge of the penalty area on 74 minutes.

The home side struck the woodwork as they piled on the pressure but could not find a way through as County stood firm against the Fifers.
