Match Preview

Four out for East Fife East Fife have injury problems ahead of the visit of Airdrie. Scott Durie, John Ovenstone, Steven Campbell and Paul McQuade will all be missing against the Diamonds. Nevertheless, boss John Robertson said: "We have done well against Airdrie and to beat them three times would be a good achievement. "Inconsistency has been the story of our season and last week we beat Forfar well and then lost to Dumbarton. "Hopefully a win in this game will set us up for the rest of the season." Airdrie will travel without defender Cameron MacDonald, who is serving the second game of a two-match suspension. Midfielder Fraser Keast has recovered from an ankle injury but he is not match fit. Diamonds boss Jimmy Boyle said: "We have exciting forwards and so do East Fife and the two sides tend to play in an open manner so there should be goals. "We were poor last week at home to Stenhousemuir so I am looking for a positive reaction from the players in this game. While I expect a few goals I will gladly settle for us just scoring one more than them to get the three points."

Match Report

Fifers ease to victory East Fife edged to within a point of the Second Division play-off places with a 2-0 win over nine-man Airdrie at the Bayview Stadium. The visitors were reduced to 10 men in the 36th minute when goalkeeper Grant Adam handled Robert Linn's effort outside the area. And things got worse for The Diamonds three minutes before the interval, Sean Lynch felled Robert Sloan inside the area before Sloan converted the kick himself. Airdrie's hopes of getting back into the match were worsened when Sean Lynch fouled Ryan Wallace to pick up his second booking of the afternoon. Substitute Craig Johnstone made sure of victory three minutes from time when he rose highest to head home Darren McCormack's cross. Ryan Donnelly came closest to pulling a goal back but could not keep his shot down from close range. Airdrie remain six points adrift of the play-offs after only recording one win in their last six outings.
