Match Report


Maybe it was plain reaction to their nerve - tingling encounters in the Cup, but East Fife didn't really click until halfway through the first period.

They had most of the running in the second half, and only some slick work by Clydebank's trialist 'keeper and untidy finishing, kept the score down,

Bankies scored in the 21st minute, when John Martis hit a half-hearted clearance straight to O'Brien's feet, and the winger found the net from 25 yards.

East Fife equalised 14 minutes later, when right-back, Mitchell grounded Bertie Miller as the winger weaved his way through.

Miller took the spot kick and sent the 'keeper the wrong way. In the 52nd minute, East Fife gained another penalty, but this time Miller made a hash of it.

As a result of this incident, O'Brien was booked for dissent, and Ruddy for a second foul on Miller. East Fife's Bobby Waddell was also booked.
