Queen's Park 1-0 East Fife

Ciaran McElroy's early goal was enough to give promotion-chasing Queen's Park victory over 10-man East Fife.

McElroy notched his second goal of the season in the 11th minute, smashing the ball into the top corner after being sent clear by Ross McPherson.

The visitors' Nathan Austin was sent off in the first half after picking up two yellow cards.

East Fife's Ola Adeyemo had a goal ruled out for offside in the last 10 minutes.
