East Fife 1-4 Berwick Rangers

Berwick Rangers boosted their League Two play-off hopes with convincing victory at Bayview Stadium.

Paul Wills got on the end of Scott Maxwell's cross to drive the ball beyond Jordan Millar on 14 minutes.

Kyle Wilkie headed home after the interval and Berwick went ahead further when Blair Henderson finished well with 20 minutes to go.

Sam Dickson nodded in a late East Fife goal before David Gold wrapped up victory with a header of his own.

East Fife, who hit the woodwork through Derek Riordan moments before half-time, remain in fourth place, while the visitors are now four points behind in a congested mid-table with a game in hand.
