We welcome league leader’s Dumbarton to the Locality Hub Bayview Stadium this afternoon for our 6th league match of the season.
Brogan Walls returns to the squad this afternoon after missing the last few weeks with an ankle injury and Scott Mercer returned to training on Thursday night after picking up a knock last weekend and could feature today provided there is no reaction.
Scott Gallacher underwent his operation on his finger during the week and could be in line for a return to the squad in 12 weeks.
Connor McManus is continuing his rehab and could be looking at a return to the squad in 6-8 weeks all going well.
Lewis Anderson featured for the Under 20s last night on his return from an ankle injury.
East Fife will be in our traditional colours of black & gold strips, black shorts and black stockings with the goalkeeper in all-yellow.
Dumbarton will be in their away colours of all white with the goalkeeper in all-grey.
The last meeting between the sides took place at Bayview back in March with the home side running out 2-0 winners. Kyle Connell opened the scoring in the 3rd minute before Danny Denholm sealed the win just after the hour mark. Dumbarton had Stuart Carswell sent off for dissent in the final minute.
