Match Preview

Fifers looking strong East Fife boss Steve Crawford has some welcome selection dilemmas for the visit of Dumbarton. Crawford has a fully-fit squad to choose from with the exception of long-term injured defender Stevie Campbell. Crawford, who may opt to drop himself, said: "I don't think I have had so many players available to me since I became the manager and it is a nice problem to have. The Sons' poor start to the season is not fooling Crawford, who added: "They got off to a slow start last season and very nearly made the play-offs so all they need is a win to get going. "I obviously want to make sure they do not get it here." Dumbarton manager Jim Chapman is hoping to add a couple of new faces to his squad ahead of kick-off. Winger Mark Gilhaney is a target while Chapman also has other names in mind. Former Hibs and Dunfermline frontman Ross Campbell is the only absentee. Chapman said: "East Fife have good experience in their team with the likes of Steven Hislop and Bobby Linn and it will be a tough game, however if we get a bit of luck in front of goal that we are due then we will do okay."

Match Report

Byrne bags three as Sons hit for six Kurtis Byrne was the hat-trick hero as East Fife romped to a 6-0 demolition of Dumbarton at the Bayview Stadium. Byrne's triple strike helped Fife to their second consecutive win with the pick of his goals coming after 71 minutes, a curling left-footed strike leaving keeper Steven Grindley no chance. It proved to be a miserable afternoon for Grindley as Dumbarton are still yet to record a single point and look increasingly like relegation favourites so early into the new season. Lloyd Young slotted home Robert Sloan`s cross for the opener after 15 minutes before Byrne netted twice, both from 12 yards, inside the final 10 minutes of the first half. Robert Linn made it 4-0 after 59 minutes from 12 yards after being set up by Scott Durie before Byrne claimed the match ball with a brilliant strike. Sloan completed the scoring seven minutes from time when his drilled shot found the bottom-left corner.
