East Fife 2-1 Annan Athletic

East Fife kept up their push for a play-off spot after coming from behind to beat Annan in League Two.

Annan took the lead when Steven Logan volleyed home from Peter Weatherson's knock-down.

The hosts' Nathan Austin then hit a post from close range but made no mistake after the break to level.

And East Fife snatched all three points a minute from time when an unnamed trialist prodded in Ross Brown's delivery.

The result leaves East Fife a point behind fourth-placed Annan.
