The Clydebank 'keeper is forced to punch clear with Matt Dyer running through on goal

After a first half in which East Fife had the better of the chances - the most notable being a George Johnston header from a Prytz cross which flew just wide - Clydebank took the lead against the run of play in 52 minutes.
East Fife tried hard to get on level terms and created several chances. The home side did have the ball in the net on the hour mark, but the goal was disallowed as a hand had been used to force the ball home. Five minutes from the end, after the referee had disallowed two penalty claims, Clydebank broke away down the left and scored a goal almost identical to the first. The Fifers, to their credit, didn't give up and had another penalty claim rejected after a Clydebank defender appeared to handle in the box.
