East Fife 1-1 Stenhousemuir

Brown Ferguson's late penalty earned Stenhousemuir a valuable draw away to fellow promotion play-off chasers East Fife in Division Two.

The home side took the lead eight minutes in when Ryan Wallace curled in a right-footed effort from 20 yards.

Davie Irons' side almost responded with a long-range goal of their own just before the interval, but Andy Rodgers' effort was tipped away by East Fife goalkeeper Michael Brown.

Stenhousemuir did earn a share of the spoils when Ferguson converted from the spot nine minutes from time after Scott Durie was ruled to have handled in the area.

There was still time for more controversy as the home side were reduced to 10 men as defender David White was dismissed for a second bookable offence.
