Nathan Austin on target again to sink Berwick
Nathan Austin scored his 16th goal of the season in all competitions as East Fife recorded a 1-0 victory over Berwick.
East Fife could have taken the lead in the 18th minute when Jason Kerr's long-range effort was deflected on to a post.
And Berwick came close to opening the scoring on the brink of half-time when David Morris' low strike was deflected narrowly wide of the post.
But it was the hosts who broke the deadlock just two minutes after the break when Kyle Wilkie's cross was headed into the back of the net by Nathan Austin.
The visitors had chances to level things up in the second half, but they were unable to find a way past Liam Kelly in the East Fife goal.
