With Alloa Athletic surprisingly taking over the reigns as Scottish Second Division league leaders, as those around them seemingly fall apart, not a lot was expected from East Fife in today's match at Recreation Park.

And not a lot came out of it.

Going down to a goal in each half from ex Fife player Stuart Noble, the result has left East Fife in 8th place and a distant nine points off the promotion playoffs, that realistically we want to avoid anyway.

More concerning is that we just cant seem to string a decent set of results together to pull us away from the relegation play off spot either.

Now sitting just five points clear of Arbroath, who recorded a 2-0 win against bottom side Clyde today, next Saturday's match against the Smokies is now huge.

A win and we can at least stop looking over our shoulders for a few games at least. A defeat and we could be in the serious shit.

It's matches like this that show the appetite of a squad. Let's just hope they go into the game with empty stomachs.
