Survival of the fittest for East Fife
The part-time Bayview side played three games in the space of seven days, but showed no signs of fatigue against the Blues on Saturday.
Winger Denholm says the Fife squad is as in shape as they come.
“We’re a fit side and the boys are all good ages,” he said.
“There’s nobody super old.
“I wasn’t feeling anything and I don’t think the rest of the boys were.
“We were all bombing on and then you look at the bench and there’s Liam Watt, Aaron Dunsmore, boys who can come on and have legs.
“Fitness is one of our strengths.”
Stranraer threatened to make the end of Saturday’s game a nervy one, netting twice within the space of a minute late on.
But Denholm says there was no panic.
“We were a bit naive towards the end and lost the two goals,” said the winger who grabbed the third of the four goals.
“But by then we could have been six up.”
This week the Fifers travel to Forfar to meet one of Denholm’s former sides.
“I know a lot of people up there and know the gaffer Stuart Malcolm,” he said.
“They’re trying to build something and have a lot of good players.
“They’re in something of a false position.
“If we go up there and do something like we did earlier in the season and play at that level then hopefully we can take the three points.”
