East Fife 0-1 Annan Athletic

Peter Weatherson's scored and was sent off as Annan held on for a win that lifts them five points clear at the top of League Two.

Weatherson netted the only goal of the game with a header from Rabin Omar's cross in the 15th minute.

But the striker was dismissed five minutes before half-time for violent conduct off the ball.

East Fife pressed after the break, with visiting keeper Jordan Hart saving well from Gary Naysmith and Jonathan Page.
