East Fife break forward and have a flurry of shots on goal.

Neither Spence or Davidson can find the net, though.

Decent stop from Jordan Hart to beat away a James Wilson drive.

10: Chance Dumbarton

Excellent play by PJ Crossan on the wing.

Gets his cross in along the face of goal but James Wilson can’t reach it.

20: Chance East Fife

Nice move up the line by the Fifers.

Ball worked to Spence who gets a cross in along the face of goal but there’s nobody there to finish.

22: Chance East Fife

Another sight of goal for East Fife.

Danny Swanson picks out Miller Fenton but his drive is blocked by Sam Ramsbottom

What a wonderful goal from the Fifers.

Really nice build up play by the team and Danny Swanson’s pass cuts open the Dumbarton defence.

It plays Aaron Dunsmore in on goal and he thumps his finish beyond Ramsbottom.

35: Chance East Fife

Excellent cross by Fenton only lacks a finish.

East Fife ending this first half strongly.

44: Chance East Fife

Danny Swanson has been absolutely terrific so far in this first half.

He almost makes it 2-0 but his shot is beaten away by Ramsbottom.

55: Quiet start to the second half

No real action during the early stages of the second half.

Dumbarton enjoying a lot of the ball but not hurting East Fife.

67: GOAL EAST FIFE!!

The Fifers now have a bit of a cushion.

Wonderful cross from Watt is met by the unmarked Aaron Steele who taps home.

It’s going to be a nervy final 10 minutes.

A slip up in the Fife box is capitalised on by PJ Crossan who taps in from close range.

86: Chance Dumbarton

So close to 2-2!

Ruaridh Langan has a clear sight of goal but blasts wide from close range.
