East Fife 4-2 Annan Athletic

East Fife moved top of League Two with victory over Annan at Bayview.

Jamie Insall tapped Kyle Wilkie's cross into the back of the net from close range, before Jonathan Page doubled the lead; slotting into the bottom corner from Gary Naysmith's floated corner.

Peter Weatherson pulled one back for Annan with a free-kick but Page headed his second.

Hibs loanee Insall fired into the top corner before Smart Osadolor reduced the deficit
