East Fife are on their travels once again tomorrow as they head north to take on Forfar Athletic. Recently appointed manager Jim Weir has turned around the fortunes of the Angus club, following up a draw against league leaders Raith Rovers with an impressive 4-3 success over Albion Rovers at Cliftonhill last Saturday.
Bayview boss Darren Young left Stark’s Park after last week’s narrow derby defeat disappointed not to have gained at least a point after his side’s efforts, but knows that a performance of a similar standard will be required against opponents who will be determined to continue climbing the table. The gaffer will also be hoping for some better news on the injury front with Greg Hurst the latest casualty, missing out on the visit to Raith after picking up a knock in midweek.
East Fife’s recent record against the Loons is fairly decent, recording a 3-0 win in Methil back in September, but the Bayview faithful will recall that the last visit to Station Park saw their favourites go down 2-0 in the Betfred Cup at the beginning of last season. A result that ultimately cost the Fifers a place in the next round of the competition.
Supporters heading to the game are advised that there will be a minute’s silence before kick-off to mark Remembrance Day.
