Raith Rovers 0-1 Dundee: Mulligan strike gives visitors first win

By Kenny CrawfordBBC Sport Scotland at Stark's Park
Josh Mulligan nets the early goal that proved to be enough for Dundee

Josh Mulligan's strike against Raith Rovers gave Dundee their first Scottish Championship win of the season.

The impressive midfielder, 19, diverted Jordan Marshall's cross into the bottom corner after 13 minutes.

Sam Stanton was twice denied by tremendous saves from Harrison Sharp as hosts Raith searched for the equaliser.

Mulligan nearly doubled his and Dundee's tally in the second half but one proved to be enough for Gary Bowyer's men.
