East Fife picked up their first points of the season in a comfortable win at home to East Stirlingshire at Bayview, as the  two teams locked horns in a league fixture for the first time in seven years.

East Stirling were without Michael Bolochoweckyj through suspension, along with the injured Paul McMullan. However David Greenhill returned to the team after recovering from a hamstring problem.

 

Hot prospect Liam Smith went straight into the East Fife starting line up having joined the club on loan from Hearts until January 5th.  The Hearts U20 captain was selected for the right back position with Fraser Mullen moving into midfield.

 

It was Gary Naysmith’s team which were first to test the opposition keeper when a shot from Kevin Smith in the second minute stung the hands of Richard Barnard in the Shire goal.

 

Kevin Smith set up the opener for John McShane and the former Celtic Nation player made no mistake as he tapped the ball into the net.

 

The away team went close on the half hour mark when Ross Gilmour missed a gilt edged opportunity putting his effort wide from close range.

 

A couple of minutes later and Fleming nearly got caught out venturing from his goal line as Steven Brisbane tried to lob him from long range but the midfielder’s attempt just whistled over the bar.

 

Shortly before the interval Kevin Smith doubled the lead for the hosts. The striker picked up a long ball on the right before cutting in towards the goal. He then pulled the trigger and the ball took a fortuitous deflection off an opposition defender which left the visiting keeper with no chance.

 

Just over five minutes into the second half and the game was as good as over when youngster David Maskrey scored his first competitive goal for The Fife calmly slotting the ball home.

 

Jamie Beaton, on for Maskrey, later when close with an effort from 20 yards out that just went over the woodwork.

 

The Shire got a consolation goal through Jordan Tapping, although the home side almost restored the three goal deficit when substitute Ross Campbell got a header on a corner kick which smashed against the bar.

 

 

East Fife: Fleming, Mullen, S Smith, S Campbell, Moyes, Walker, McAleer, Maskrey (Beaton 75), McShane (R Campbell 71), K Smith (Austin 88), L Smith Subs not used: Millar, Barr, Brown

 

East Stirlingshire: Barnard, Gilmour, Shepherd, Greene, Townsley (Tapping 60), Tully, Vidler, Brisbane (Shields 65), McKenna, McGregor (Doyle 69), Greenhill Subs not used: Quinn, McCabe, Wright, Kinnaird

East Fife are still on the hunt to get their first points of the league campaign after they were defeated 2-0 by Albion Rovers at Cliftonhill.

Gary Naysmith, making his first ever visit to Rovers' Coatbridge ground as East Fife manager, will be disappointed that his team failed to get a boost from their superb midweek cup tie win in Brora, as often they struggled to hit any kind of fluency in this match.

East Fife deservedly went through to the next round of the Petrofac Training Cup after seeing off League One side Forfar Athletic at Bayview.

The Fifers were very much aware that Dick Campbell’s side would provide a stern test, with the Station Park team having recruited the services of former Dunfermline midfielder Stephen Husband as well as former Aberdeen player Derek Young during the close season, to what was already an experienced pool.
