Three minutes. That's all that stood between East Fife securing Second Division football for another season and being faced with a must-not-lose match next Saturday.

A defensive blunder on 87 saw Jonny Smart and Div Muir both go for the same ball, with neither clearing it and allowing Stenhousemuir's Paul Quinn to gleefully fire home for a vital point for the visitors.

East Fife had taken the lead on 54 minutes and as the game ticked to a finish it was looking that next week's match at Arbroath would be meaningless and the annual fancy dress end of season spectacular would be a lot more enjoyable.

It was not to be and despite the Fife having numerous chances which once again they didn't take (a clinical striker is in short supply in our division but we deseperately need to magic one up from somewhere for next year), the points had to be shared.

The draw kept East Fife 7th and Stenny 8th, thanks to their ten goal advantage over Arbroath.

With Stenny hosting Peterhead, a club with nothing to play for, on their plastic pitch next Saturday, you would expect them to get at least a point from that. It means that we HAVE to take something from our last match of the season at Arbroath.

A point, three, I don't care by this stage.

Let's just hope that the players can actually keep their eye on the ball and the ultimate prize for 90 minutes next Saturday.

C'mon the Fife.
