But Glenrothes pose an altogether different proposition, with Benny Andrew’s men chasing promotion from the McBookie.com North Division.

Glens started brightly with John Martin looking lively.

The visitors opened the scoring on 12 minutes with former East Fife striker Martin rifling home a shot from 18 yards.

It was all one way traffic.

Forbes fired home from 10 yards after a crossfield pass from Bissett.

It was soon to be 3-0 after Martin rounded the keeper and scuffed his shot but managed to deceive the keeper.

Kinness made it 4 on the stroke of half time.

The second half started in the same manner as the first,

Martin was awarded a soft penalty which he dispatched to make it 5.

Kinnes added another after a great run up the wing firing home from the edge of the box.

Falconer got on the end of a Griffin shot to guide the ball home.

Kinnes got his hatrick with the last kick of the ball.

Burgh host Kirriemuir at the weekend while Glens will look to keep up their charge at home to Coupar Angus.
