The worry that a lot of East Fife fans have at the moment is where are the goals going to be coming from for the remainder of the season.

After today's performance, that's not going to change any time soon by the looks of it.

There's not too much to say about today's game. East Fife didn't play badly, they just lacked a killer touch in front of goal and once again failed to take full advantage of the opposition going down to ten men.

Brechin edged the first half and Rory McAllister was proving a handful for the Fife defence, causing Michael Brown to make a few fine saves and stops. Despite the pressure, the great thing to see was that the defence held firm.

East Fife had their own chances, the best of which was a John Ovenstone header which was tipped over early on.

The second half was end to end stuff and East Fife edged this one. Both teams were creating chances and when Dougie Hill was sent off after 63 minutes for retaliation, the Fife faithful saw their chance to turn the screw and land all three points.

Not to be though and although we had some great chances to win it, Brechin were to have to best when McAllister broke through in the final minute but shot wide.

After Tuesday night's woeful performance as least we steadied the ship. No goals conceded but we need to turn it around at the other end of we won't be leaving that relegation playoff spot any time soon.

Mon the Fife.
