Raith Rovers miss out on play-offs after Kilmarnock draw

29 April 2022

Ollie Shaw cancelled out Aidan Connolly’s opener as Raith Rovers’ slim chances of reaching the play-offs were ended following a 1-1 cinch Championship draw against Kilmarnock at Stark’s Park.

The home side took the lead on the half-hour mark when Connolly fired Rovers ahead – via a deflection – for his 10th goal of the season in all competitions.

The league champions equalised four minutes after the break as Shaw lifted the ball over Jamie MacDonald – moments after he was initially denied by the goalkeeper – to almost-certainly put the play-offs out of reach for the hosts.

Connolly hit the crossbar as Raith looked to steal victory at the death but Kilmarnock held on for a share of the spoils.
