Glens made two changes from last week bringing in Martin for Forbes and Sawers for Honeyman.

Glens got off to a quick start scoring after 30 seconds following a fine move the ball was tucked away by Martin.

A minute later a cross from Kinnes found Scarborough who in turn found Martin whose shot slipped wide from close range.

Scarborough had an effort turned past for a corner which when taken he headed wide. In the fifth minute Gorton made a fine double save from close range to prevent Martin doubling the score.

A few minutes later an effort from Jackson just cleared the bar.

Glenrothes were in complete control and the one way traffic continued as another excellent cross from Kinnes was turned round the post for a corner.

Glens were to rue not converting their early chances when the home side equalised in 15 minutes with the Glens defence getting themselves into a tangle allowing Dempster to shoot home.

Glenrothes were now trying to play the long ball which they were over-hitting on most occasions, however, they were still making numerous chances one of which was an effort from Jackson which was cleared off the line by the Albion defence.

Glens regained the lead on 40 minutes when a corner kick was headed home by Scarborough.

Glens started the second half changing Napier for Forbes.

Scarborough came close doing everything right bar his final attempt which flew over the bar while, from a corner, Martin had a header strike the crossbar.

The game settled back into the one-way traffic of the first half with only the poor finishing preventing a much larger scoreline.

Glens made a further two changes with Moffat replacing the injured Forbes and a few minutes later Falconer replacing the injured Grierson.

The game was petering down to the last ten minutes when Martin was pulled down in the box which resulted in a red card for the Albion player.

Martin stood up to take the penalty himself and duly converted. On 88 minutes following a fine move Craig Wallace fired home the Glens’ fourth goal.

It was an easy victory in the end for Glenrothes but they made it hard for themselves at times.

This week sees the Glens at home to Brechin Vics with a 2.30 p.m kick off.
