Kirkcaldy & Dysart FC: Emphatic 4-0 win at Rosyth is the YM’s third league victory in a row

Kirkcaldy & Dysart made a mockery of their recent poor record against Fife rivals Rosyth by recording a fine 4-0 East of Scotland League first division away win against Stevie Crawford’s team last Saturday.

Yet the home team nearly opened the scoring on three minutes when keeper Dion Gear was lucky that his late clearance rebounded off the Roysth forward and just slipped past the post.

But from there on the YM, with their strong midfield presence, slowly started to press forward and they were rewarded on the 14th minute with the opening goal.

Another excellent free-kick from Mark Wilkie to the back post saw the unmarked Lewis Anderson come in to coolly stroke the ball past the Rosyth keeper.

Two minutes later it was nearly two when John Smith, after some great play, put in Jack Wilson whose shot was deflected for a corner.From the resulting setpiece there was a mad scramble in the home box including one shot cleared off the line, but the visitors just couldn’t force it home for the important second.

But it was finally 2-0 on the 30 minutes, with Lewis Elder and Smith linking well before the latter slid a perfect pass to Kieran Dall who slipped the ball home.

After the visitors survived a goalmouth scramble in their box following a corner, it was 3-0 when the home keeper failed to control the ball, Smith rounded him and accurately slotted home.

So it came as no surprise when Wilson did make it 4-0 when he thundered home a 20-yard shot on 53 minutes following an excellent Dall pass.

Rosyth then forced plety of late pressure but keeper Gear dealt with every dangerous cross that came his way with ease and a safe pair of hands.

Away gaffer Craig Ness freshened his team with the late introduction of Tyler McKenzie and Jason Nouri in midfield and despite all the home pressure and efforts, Rosyth couldn’t score.
