Champions East Fife at full strength for final game of the season

East Fife's title-winning player-manager Gary Naysmith has a full squad at his disposal as they wave goodbye to Ladbrokes League Two against East Stirling at Bayview.

The Fifers men lost their first outing after clinching promotion and Naysmith is determined to end the season in style.

He said: "This will be a memorable afternoon in lots of ways so we want to get it off to a great start with a win. We will be starting with the side that got us over the line in terms of winning the league but I am not sure how East Stirling will line up.

"They have a couple of massive games coming up and they could be very dangerous opponents as they will have players that will want to be involved."

East Stirling will select a youthful side as they look to keep senior players fresh for the relegation play-off.

Michael Wallace is sidelined with a foot problem and head coach Craig Tully hopes to avoid any further injury problems.

Tully said: "We have called some of our under-20s as we cannot afford any injuries or suspensions ahead of the play-offs. They have been waiting for the chance to be in the first team and they will get it in what will be a very tough game played at a buoyant Bayview.

"Some of the players coming in should view it as a chance to force themselves into my plans for what will be two massive games."
