Nathan Austin scored his 16th goal of the season in all competitions to seal victory for East Fife.

The home side almost took the lead in the 18th minute when Jason Kerr's long-range hit the post.

They did go in front just two minutes after the break when Kyle Wilkie's cross was headed into the back of the net by Nathan Austin.

The visitors had chances to level things up in the second half, but they were unable to find an equaliser.
