It's third versus second at Bayview Stadium tomorrow as East Fife and Alloa Athletic lock horns for the fifth time this season. Speaking earlier today, Bayview boss Barry Smith looked ahead to the clash.

"The boys are looking forward to tomorrow's game after a great result last week at Livingston. We had to dig deep to get the win and the players can take confidence from beating the league leaders away from home. It will be another very tough match against Alloa, who are going very well at the moment, but hopefully, with it being at home we can take the game to them."

On the injury front, the Gaffer reported that midfielder Mark Lamont remains sidelined, while striker Jordan Austin is doubtful through illness. Jonathan Page also misses out, serving a one game suspension tomorrow. Better news for home fans is that defender Luke Watt is closing in to a return to the squad, although he is unlikely to be involved before next week.

Alloa Athletic have had the upper hand in previous meetings this season, winning all three encounters at the Indodrill Stadium, while the Methil men were denied a Bayview victory in November by a last minute equaliser, in a game ending in a 2-2 draw.  

Supporters of both sides are reminded that they are welcome to enjoy pre and post match refreshments in the Stadium bars.
