3: Early chance Clyde

Unsurprisingly it’s Clyde who have started the game the best.

Ewan Otoo was unlucky not to break the deadlock when he stormed through the East Fife defence but couldn’t get a clean connection on his shot and Hart smothered.

9: Half chance East Fife

Liam Watt’s through ball is over hit and just out of Greig Spence’s reach.

It’s one way traffic here to be honest.

Another decent chance for Clyde as Ally Love finds Ross Cunningham who can’t keep his shot down.

Goodwillie manages to hold off the attentions of the East Fife defence and get a shot away which hard does well to get down and block.

22: Chance East Fife

Best chance of the game for East Fife.

Good knock down from Ross Davidson to Sean Brown on the edge of the box.

He gets a shot away but blasts it high and wide.

25: Chance East Fife!

Best chance of the game so far.

Wonderful free kick by Agnew picks out Spence.

He glances his header towards goal but it drifts inches wide.

Ross Cunningham again with a sight of goal.

Again, though, he opts for power and a first time shot and fires high over the bar.

Well that’s been coming.

Deep cross into the back post and there to meet it is Ally Love who fires home from close range.

Looks like Darren Young is ringing the changes at the break. McKinnon, Denholm and Healy all coming on.

48: GOAL EAST FIFE!

East Fife a lot brighter in the opening couple of minutes of the second half.

Scott Rumsby hauled down Ross Dunlop in the box for a penalty to the Fifers.

Scott Agnew steps up and sends David Mitchell the wrong way.

54: Chance East Fife

The Methil side break forward again and a neat move up the park is worked to Sean Brown who can’t direct his shot on target.

This game has opened right up.

East Fife playing so much better and forcing the home side to dig deep and battle for their safety.
