East Fife 1-0 Stenhousemuir

A solitary goal by Gary Fisher against Stenhousemuir took East Fife out of Scottish League One's bottom two places.

Fisher's strike came shortly before half-time, a low effort following Liam Buchanan's pass.

The hosts almost doubled their lead soon after with Pat Clarke missing from close range.

Fisher and Clarke threatened again in the second half while Stenny improved without being able to find a leveller.
