Match Preview

Fifers ready to fire East Fife have strikers Bobby Linn and Ryan Wallace available again as they look to grab a comprehensive win over Arbroath. Scott Durie is out with an ankle injury and David White is banned for the Fifers, who are presently three points and eight goals behind fourth-placed Airdrie. No-one at New Bayview is giving up hope with manager Gordon Durie saying: "It is a major mountain to climb but we will give it a real go. "We have to look to win the game and score some goals. "Having Bobby and Ryan available again will certainly help us but Arbroath are a more than useful side that will want a win before they go into the play-offs." Second-placed Arbroath travel without the injured pair of Jordan Elfverson and Gavin Swankie. Full-backs Mark Baxter and Kieran McAnespie are both doubtful with manager Paul Sheerin expecting to face a heavy assault from the Fifers. He explained: "East Fife have to win and win well to have any chance of being in the play-offs so I am expecting them to come out all guns blazing to get an early goal. "We always try and play a positive game so we may just have to dig ourselves in a bit before stamping our mark on things. "It will be a fantastic test for us ahead of the play-off first leg with Dumbarton next week."
