The last meeting between the sides took place in February 2022 at Bayview. Goals from Anton Dowds, Scott Agnew (penalty), Danny Denholm and Ryan Wallace saw East Fife race into a 4-0 lead before Stranraer pulled 2 goals back in quick succession through Joao Vitoria and Scott Robertson, but the home side were able to hang on for a 4-2 victory.
