Stenhousemuir 2-1 East Fife

Stenhousemuir midfielder Bryan Hodge scored a rare brace as his side came from behind to beat East Fife.

After a goalless first half, the visitors began to dominate and it came as no surprise when they took the lead in the 55th minute.

Scott McBride fired his free-kick past Stenhousemuir keeper Callum Reidford from the right edge of the area to score his eighth league goal of the campaign.

However, the hosts found themselves on level terms five minutes later when Hodge volleyed home from 20 yards out to score his first goal of the season.

The Warriors went from strength to strength in the closing stages and grabbed the winner when Hodge drilled the ball into the bottom corner from the left side of the area.
