Previous Encounter

East Fife hosted Stirling Albion on 1st October, in what was Greig MacDonald’s first game as East Fife Interim Manager. The visitors took the game by the scruff of the neck, and after a flurry of saves, Fleming was beaten inside 6 minutes, giving Stirling the advantage.

Fife were given a lifeline, when Trouten scored a penalty just after the half an hour mark. It was all for naught though as Darren Young’s men re-took the lead in injury time.

Fife defended well in the second half to stop the score line being further stretched but struggled going forward last time out.

Fleming, Murdoch, Steele, Denham, Murdoch, Healy (Schiavone 61’), Ferguson, Slattery (Steven 61’), Baldé, Trouten, Shepherd.
