Super sub Gemmell at the double
John Gemmell's brace sent Stenhousemuir on the way to a 3-0 home win against East Fife.
The Warriors were unbeaten in their last five meetings against the visitors, but struggled to find any fluency in an uneventful first half, Fifers' midfielder Robert Barr going closest with a 25-yard strike after 22 minutes.
Gemmell came off the bench in the 61st minute, and ignited the game when he found the back of the net with a long-range strike just four minutes later.
Three minutes later, Bryan Hodge's left-wing cross picked out Gemmell in the area, allowing the former Albion man to volley home his eighth goal of the season.
Stewart Kean then rifled a right-footed strike into the top corner to notch the hosts' third goal in seven minutes.
Their shell-shocked opponents were unable to mount a late comeback, Barr volleying their only opportunity straight at goalkeeper Robbie Thomson late on.
