East Fife 3-1 East Stirlingshire

East Fife bounced back from defeat by Albion Rovers with a comfortable win over East Stirlingshire.

Striker Jon McShane opened the scoring for the hosts when he tapped in a Kevin Smith corner.

Smith added a second on the stroke of half-time after his shot took a wicked deflection.

David Maskrey wrapped up the points midway through the second half, though Shire grabbed a consolation late on through Jordan Tapping's header.
