Locke Salutes Table Topping Rovers

- Goals from Barr and Stewart
- Raith top of the Championship with 3 wins from 3
Raith Rovers claimed the bragging rights, and a first place in the Championship table, as they won the Fife derby 2-0 against Dunfermline.
Second half goals from Bobby Barr and Mark Stewart won the game for Rovers, managed by Sport Careers Agency client Gary Locke and assistant Darren Jackson.
The victory over Alan Johnston's Pars keeps Raith top of the SPFL Championship with three wins out of three, ahead of pre-season favourites Hibernian on goal difference.
Locke was impressed with his sides effort after the match:
"I'm delighted for everyone around the club.
"Dunfermline have held the upper hand in Fife derbies for a while, so today was a big result for us."
