Naysmith looking for East Fife reaction

East Fife player/ manager Gary Naysmith has a fully fit squad as they look to beat bottom of the table visitors Arbroath.

The boss is looking for his men bounce back from last weekend's Ladbrokes Scottish League Two defeat at Annan.

Naysmith said: "I have to be honest and admit that Annan were just slightly better than us on their own pitch so we have to take that one on the chin and move on. It will not be easy against an Arbroath side who I believe are in a false position in the table.

"They have quality in their ranks and will come good but hopefully not this weekend."

Arbroath manager Todd Lumsden also has a full squad to choose from as he looks to guide the Red Lichties to their first win of the season.

He said: "Last weekend against Clyde their goal came from an effort that was put onto the underside of the bar before dropping in.

"In the last minute we hit the inside of the post and the ball rolled across the line before being cleared.

"The players deserved better as they had worked really hard and hopefully they will earn a better reward in this game although it will be tough."
