East Stirlingshire 1-3 East Fife

East Fife moved level on points with second-placed Queen's Park by beating East Stirlingshire in League Two.

Kris Faulds' free-kick for Shire was glanced in by the head of East Fife player-manager Gary Naysmith.

It was all square through Kyle Wilkie and the visitors took the lead when Nathan Austin scored the rebound after his penalty had been saved.

The visitors wrapped up the win when Scott Mercer's corner fell to Alistair Coote and he drilled into the net.
