Fifers foiled again

East Fife have now gone four games without a win as they were beaten 3-1 by Stranraer.

Back in September East Fife won this fixture 6-2 but two Darren Gribben goals in the opening half an hour left them with a mountain to climb.

Gribben opened the scoring in the ninth minute with a close-range finish following Grant Gallagher's pass.

He added a second 20 minutes later in similar fashion, with Sean Winter the architect.

Paul Willis looked as if he had sparked a second-half fightback as he fired into the bottom corner from the right of the penalty area.

But just five minutes later Stranraer restored their two-goal lead as Gribben turned provider for Winter, who slotted past Calum Antell from close range.
