Scottish League Two,
Match Report by Liam Thomson
( for Jim Corstorphine’s Match Photos click HERE )
East Fife moved within touching distance of qualifying for the League One playoffs after they comprehensively defeated Colin Cameron’s Berwick Rangers side at Shielfield Park.
Going into the match the Fifers welcomed back fit again Liam Smith and Allan Walker. However manager Gary Naysmith was unable to play as he recovers from a calf injury and he joined skipper Stevie Campbell on the sick list.
The visitors started the match brightly and very early on Ross Brown went close with a shot which former Fife keeper Michael Andrews tipped over the woodwork.
After that both teams fought hard and there was a real midfield war of attrition with neither side giving much away.
That changed though in the 35th minute when the Fifers managed to breach the Berwick defence. Kevin Smith beat a Berwick defender before firing a left footed shot past Andrews into the right corner of the goal from fifteen yards out.
Not long after the half-time break the Methil men almost doubled the deficit when Allan Walker latched onto a lovely long ball forward by Scott Smith before driving an effort from twenty yards out which the Berwick goalie did well to save flipping the ball out for a corner kick.
A couple of minutes after that chance the home side nearly got a leveller through captain Stephen Tulloch but Ross Brown came to the rescue for the Fifers as he hacked the midfielder’s header off the line.
East Fife responded with a counter attack and the deadly Nathan Austin almost added to his tally for the season when Liam Smith whipped a delightful ball into the area which Austin connected with but his volley went over.
Gary Naysmith’s side were given a boost in the 63rd minute when their opponents were reduced to ten men after Lee Currie was given his marching orders for lashing out at Scott Smith.
The visitors extended their lead in the 71st minute when Page headed home a rebound following a scrap in the area.
With seven minutes left on the clock, Kevin Smith wrapped up the match with a composed finish after good play by Austin who dispossessed Maxwell before squaring the ball to his fellow forward.
