East Fife stayed third bottom of the Scottish Second Division today and two points of the bottom spot after a truly woeful performance against Alloa Athletic today.

Alloa ran out 2-0 winners but a missed penalty and some excellent saves from Mark Ridgers kept the scoreline down in an afternoon to forget for the Fifers.

Coming after last week's Scottish Cup defeat to the official worst league side in Scotland, the fans expected the team to come out and make a statement.

They did that but not what we were looking for.

The midfield is non existant with no one seemingly able to take the game by the scruff of the neck, the defence is all over the place and lacking stability and Paul Sludden is clearly out of his depth and not the strike partner the hard working and long suffering Paul McManus is desperately needing.

If these performances don't turn around soon then the team is destined for a return to the division we spent so long trying to get out of with no real hope of getting back out of it any time soon.

Depressing times.
