Match Preview

Ferguson back for Athletic Alloa host East Fife with long-term absentee Brown Ferguson included in Allan Maitland's squad for the first time this season following knee surgery last summer. But defender Scott Walker is suspended and David McClune, Mark Brown, Andy Scott and Nathan Taggart are all ruled out through injury, with Maitland promoting Kenny O'Brien for the club's youth set-up to bolster numbers. Maitland's men have slipped to sixth pace and he is determined that they fall no further. Maitland said: "I do not want us to be involved in the dog-fight that will take place to avoid relegation. "Defeating East Fife allows us to keep away from that and would also be pay back for a 4-1 defeat at their place." East Fife boss John Robertson is without Steven Campbell, Robert Sloan, Scott Durie, Jim Hamilton and Ryan Wallace. The New Bayview manager will again promote from the club's youth ranks and says that the shortage of bodies has made his job easier. Robertson said: "When you are down to only 14 fit players and the boys that come in help you to win in midweek it is simply a case of the team picking itself. "There are six teams battling it to avoid relegation so we will be going out for a win and three points as draws are not any use."

Match Report

Fifers find win at Alloa East Fife pulled themselves away from the relegation zone with a convincing 3-1 win away at Alloa. Two goals from Craig Johnstone and a Ross Philip own goal leaves Alloa without a win at home in seven matches. The opening goal of the afternoon came on 34 minutes when East Fife midfielder Craig Johnstone slotted into the bottom corner from close range after Steven Hislop's cross. Any hopes of a possible comeback were finished following a disastrous end to the first-half. Alloa centre back Ross Philip deflected a Robert Linn shot into his own net two minutes into first-half stoppage time, followed quickly by Craig Johnstone's second to make it 3-0 at the break. The plucky hosts pulled one goal back just after the hour mark, when Michael McGowan converted a penalty but it was just a consolation as the visitors claimed three vital points.
