Queen's Park 0-2 East Fife

East Fife continued their impressive start to the season in League Two with a win over Queen's Park at Hampden.

Craig Murray put the Fifers in front just shy of the half hour, slamming home a loose ball after William Muir had saved well from Nathan Austin.

Cammy Marlow and Vincent Berry briefly threatened to equalise.

But Gary Naysmith's men were always well in control and Austin displayed some neat close control and dribbling before dispatching a fine shot.
