A DEPLETED East Fife squad travelled to Dundee for a game from which they were lucky to escape with a point, after a 3-3 draw.

The Fifers struggled to get into their passing game on a pitch with two goals of different sizes, ankle-breaking divots and a substantial hill.

However, they did take the lead within 15 minutes.

A cross was cleared by the City defence, only for Sarah Herd to head the ball over the advancing defence in to the path of Anderson, who headed the ball over the ‘keeper.

City quickly responded with a wonder goal.

Hamilton, in the Fife nets, made a mess of a passback, clearing the ball into the path of a City midfield, who hit a superb long-range effort into the empty net.

The Fifers went ahead just before half-time, as a Mowbray corner and Anderson’s header were cleared off the line.

The clearance was chipped to the back post for Kemp to find the crossbar with her header and Clark followed up to head home.

City equalised on the 50th minute. A long ball from Dundee’s ‘keeper over the top of the East Fife defence found their striker, who hit a good shot beyond Hamilton.

The same player put City ahead for the first time in the game, turning the Fife defence from a throw-in and firing the ball home.

Fife looked lacklustre and a point looked unlikely, until a Reilly cross was met by Clark.
