Airdrie v Ef - as it happened

Last updated: Tuesday, 20 April, 2021, 21:19

  • Kick off 7.45pm

What can happen tonight?

East Fife need just a point to finish inside the top 5 and a draw also suits Airdrie who will also end inside the top five.

If Montrose don’t beat Cove it doesn’t matter what happens between Airdrie and East Fife.

0: And we’re off!

We’re underway in Airdrie

Plenty at stake for both of these sides and there’s certainly a nervousness on the park.

No side has really created anything yet.

22: Still very much all square

Both sides giving it their all but this match is very short on quality at the moment.

Ball being battered around all over the shop.

It’s frantic stuff.

35: Chance East Fife

Trademark free kick from Scott Agnew at the edge of the box.

Sends his kick towards the top corner but it drifts wide.

42: East Fife penalty claim

Agnew takes a tumble inside the Airdrie box.

A few appeals for a penalty but the ref is having none of it.

48: Chance East Fife

Bright start to the second half from East Fife.

Agnew has had a snap shot from a Wallace delivery which cleared the bar.

55: Massive chance East Fife!

East Fife should be a goal up.

Ryan Wallace finds Sean Brown scampering clear on goal.

Max Currie is off his line quickly to make the block.

The hosts take the lead. Corner isn’t cleared by the visiting defence and there to nod it home is Airdrie’s Calum Gallagher.

74: All hands on deck

The Fifers now need to go for it.

As things stand it’s a place inside the bottom 5.

Oh dear.

East Fife have had the stuffing knocked out of them now.

Foul inside the box b Denholm on Turner.

Long saves Carrick’s penalty but the striker is first to react and nets the rebound.
