Annan Athletic 2-1 East Fife

Annan Athletic won to move level on points with opponents East Fife, who are fourth in Scottish League Two.

After a scoreless first half, Peter Weatherson headed Annan ahead from Kieran Brannan's cross.

Alan Cook levelled for the Fifers with a superb curling strike from outside the penalty area.

But, after Gary Naysmith fouled David Hopkirk and was sent off, substitute Scott Davidson converted the resulting penalty.
