2: GOAL EAST FIFE!
The home side waste absolutely no time in taking the lead. Lovely delivery from Chris Higgins as he hangs the ball up along the face of goal. First in with the header is Danny Denholm.
8: Great start
What an opening to the game bu Darren Young’s side. Clearly still smarting after Tuesday’s loss at Montrose they’ve raced out the traps.
16: Clyde weather the storm
East Fife have been well on top since the first whistle but, to their credit, Clyde have managed to work their way back into the game. But with David Goodwillie absent in attack they’re looking pretty blunt.
25: Fifers back on top
Some really good performances tonight so far in this Fife side. Liam Watt and Danny Denholm both looking lively. Newton and Fenton also performing well.
30: Chance East Fife
Danny Swanson is attracting the attention of the Clyde defence with a few meaty challenges. He wins a free-kick on the edge of the Clyde box which he takes himself but sends over the bar.
40: Chance East Fife!
Sean Brown races in behind the Clyde defence but his shot is tame and comfortably tipped past.
50: Chance Clyde
Out of the blue the visitors are almost level. Ball into the box is met by Craig Howie who heads wide.
60: End to end
Been a really good game this, helped by the early opening goal. Play still going from end to end with the Fifers set to freshen things up. Davidson and Watson coming on.
78: Still on a knifedge
78: East fife have been the better team but with just the one goal advantage things are still in the balance.
84: Chance East Fife!
Best chance of the second half for the Fifers. Free-kick evades the Clyde defence and finds Craig Watson whose acrobatic effort is well held.
