Man of the Match:

A second half comeback saw us record our second league win over East Fife to stay top of the league on goal difference from Arboath.

It took the home side only six minutes to open the scoring when Ogleby held off a challenge and cut the ball back to Ryan Wallace who shot past Flynn from close in.

It did not take us long to into the game and McKenzie saw home keeper Ridgers pull off a fine save from his drive and then Stewart went clean through but failed to convert.

Ridgers then pulled off a fine save from a Stewart free-kick and then the front man went clean through again but this time shot over. Flynn then had a couple of good saves from Ogleby and Wallace.

We were level within three minutes of the second period. Morton tested Ridgers and seconds later Scott Linton latched onto a good ball into the box from the Hearts loanee and his looping header deceived the keeper.

Fourteen minutes later we went in front and this time Ridgers, so often in this game East Fife's saviour, blundered. His mis-hit clearance went straight to Jon Robertson and with the keeper stranded the skipper rolled the ball into the empty net.

Fit again Naismith replaced McKenzie as we went for the killer third goal. With only one goal in it there was always the danger that the hosts could grab a point but in the last minute Jordan Morton was perfectly placed to convert from close in to wrap things up.
