East Fife 2-1 Clyde (agg 0-1, East Fife win 7-6 pens)

East Fife progressed to the League one play-off final after beating Clyde on penalties at Bayview.

Trailing 1-0 from the semi-final first leg, the Fifers levelled the tie through Scott McBride's header.

Scott Ferguson fired home for Clyde but Kevin Smith's strike sent the match into extra-time.

And, after there was no further goals in open play, Fraser McGhee's spot-kick miss proved crucial as East Fife won the shoot-out 7-6.

Gary Naysmith's side will face Stirling Albion over two legs, with a place in League One the prize for the eventual winner.
