Sheer class for Arbroath
Arbroath completed back-to-back victories for just the second time this season as they beat 10-man East Fife 1-0.
Paul Sheerin scored the only goal of the game as the home side drew level on points with fifth placed Forfar.
In a goalless first period, Sheerin came the closest to breaking the deadlock for the home side but his close-range header was brilliantly saved by Calum Antell.
Paul Willis fired over in first-half stoppage-time from inside the area for the visitors.
The match came to life in the second period as Craig Johnstone was dismissed for a bad challenge on Steven Doris after just 65 seconds.
And Arbroath took full advantage to strike in the 53rd minute through Sheerin's low drive into the far corner.
