Match Preview

Defensive poser for Airdrie Airdrie have defensive concerns for the visit of East Fife. Euan Grant is suspended following his sending off against Ayr at the weekend, and he will join banned team-mate Keiron Stallard on the sidelines. Full-back Craig Hill has been ruled out with a facial injury and the experienced Eddie Forrest is a doubt, with Diamonds boss Jimmy Boyle looking for a huge turnaround from his men after they conceded five goals in the second half at the weekend. Boyle said: "It definitely needs to be a whole lot better than that when we take on East Fife. "They will be out for revenge after our win at their place recently, so we have to get back on the rails again really quickly." East Fife boss John Robertson still has a number of injury concerns to deal with ahead of the trip. Steven Campbell, Robert Sloan, Jim Hamilton and Ryan Wallace remain sidelined, but Scott Durie could be available to bolster numbers as the Fifers look to make fifth place their own. Robertson has been delighted with the efforts of his patched-up side recently, saying: "The effort has been superb and we will need that again against an Airdrie side that beat us only 10 days ago. "They had a bad result at the weekend and will be out to make up for that, so we need to be at the top of our game."

Match Report

Hamilton off target as Fifers draw Play-off chasing East Fife were left to rue James Hamilton's second-half penalty miss as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Airdrie at New Broomfield. A frantic start saw the Fifers go close after three minutes, Steven Hislop shooting wide before United's Scott Gemmill had a fifth-minute effort saved by goalkeeper Michael Brown. The Diamonds took the lead after 12 minutes when Phil Johnston slotted home from Gary Mackay-Steven's cross. But their advantage lasted only 10 minutes as Jonathan Smart equalised for East Fife, heading in from Robert Linn's free-kick. The goalmouth action then died down until the 76th minute when the Fifers were given a penalty following Paul Lovering's handball, but Hamilton put his spot-kick wide.
