Man of the Match:

The fifth meeting of the season saw a goalless stalemate as we stretched our unbeaten run to nine games and with Arbroath also being held to a draw at Stirling the status quo remained at the top of the table with us four points clear of the Red Lichties.
There were four changes to the side which had won the Fife derby in Methil the previous week. Colin Cameron, Thomas O’Brien, Mark Ramsay and Lewis Coult were back in while Gary Fisher and Joe Mbu dropped to the bench with David Cowan and Greg Stewart side lined with injuries.
We were first to threaten in the first minute but Ramsay saw his shot saved by Brown.
The visitors had their first and only attempt of the opening period after 17 minutes but Flynn easily saved his weak header.
Ramsay saw a shot from a Coult cross held by keeper Brown after 23 minutes and minutes later the custodian was again called into action saving a 12 yard header from Coult.
Just after the half hour Linton fired in a free kick from 22 yards which flew just past the post.
As the half wound down Coult had two good chances to break the deadlock on his 50th appearance for the club.
A corner from Linton saw the ball flicked into his path by O’Brien and his header appeared to be net bound before coming off McKenzie on the line.
Minutes later the ‘Flamingo’ unleashed a powerful shot 14 yards which cracked off the crossbar.
The visitors looking for the points to secure a play -off place opened the second period more brightly and within three minutes Rodgers saw a shot whistle just past the post after taking a deflection off Linton.
Just short of the hour mark the Warriors were appealing for a penalty when Willie Lyle’s shot struck Derek Lyle’s arm put their appeals were waved aside by referee Colvin.
Minutes later Rodgers had a great opportunity to break the stalemate with a clever lob which went just over the bar.
The last 15 minutes of the game however saw a late rally from us as we went all out for the three points.
Coult headed just wide from 18 yards then Adamson saw a powerful shot from 22 yards held by Brown.
The Keeper then denied Ramsay when he tipped his header over the bar and did likewise with an effort from Armstrong.
