Match Preview

Smokies duo return Arbroath will need to put the disappointment of failing to take over the lead in the Second Division behind them against visitors East Fife and they look set to have Collin Samuel and Mark Baxter available after injury to help. Josh Falkingham returns after missing the 2-2 draw with Airdrie in midweek through suspension, however Jordan Elfverson misses out again with a back injury. Player-manager Paul Sheerin said: "It was a chance to get our noses in front but we will need to pick ourselves up. "The dressing room was quiet afterwards but we are in a good place and should be positive about it against an East Fife side that may feel they have something to prove after John Robertson lost his job." East Fife will be under the interim control of former Scotland striker Gordon Durie for the first time following Robertson's dismissal and they will be missing the injured Paul McQuade. John Ovenstone and Scott Durie are in with a good chance of returning after knocks. "It is never nice when these things happen in football but it is important to concentrate on the players and the jobs they have to do," said Gordon Durie. "We have played Arbroath a couple of times already this season and probably deserved to get more than the draw we got in January. We will be going there looking to do well and keeping ourselves in the top half of the table."

Match Report

Fifers battle back to claim point Arbroath threw away a two-goal lead for the second time in three days to again miss the chance to go top of Division Two after being held to a 2-2 draw by 10-man East Fife. The home side took only six minutes to strike when Collin Samuel crossed for Liam Caddis to slot into the bottom corner of the net from 12 yards. And the lead was doubled in the 15th minute when Samuel crossed from the opposite side for Caddis to finish into the same corner - this time left-footed. But the Fifers pulled one back against the run of play when Robert Sloan calmly converted Ryan Wallace's pass after 27 minutes. The deficit was wiped out three minutes before half-time - Wallace crossing for Steven Hislop to power a header past Darren Hill to secure a point in Gordon Durie's first game in charge.
