Scottish League Two: Annan Athletic 2-4 East Fife

East Fife dominated at Galabank in the falling snow to beat Annan Annan and leapfrog the hosts into third place in Scottish League Two.

Jamie Insall put the Fifers in the lead after Nathan Austin fired against the post and the latter added another after dispossessing Martin McNiff.

Jason Kerr headed in the third and Kyle Wilkie volleyed in an Install cross.

Greig McDonald unexpectedly pulled two back in the last five minutes for the Fifers, but it was too little too late.
