Forfar Athletic 2-0 East Fife

Ross Campbell scored within five minutes of coming off the bench to help Forfar to a win over East Fife.

The Fifers had Gary Thom sent off for handball but Forfar's Iain Campbell fired the resultant penalty wide.

However, the hosts did take the lead in the 68th minute when Chris Templeman steered past Paterson.

The Sky Blues doubled their lead with 10 minutes to go when Ross Campbell got on the end of Iain Campbell's cross to head in from close range.
