East Fife 2-0 Clyde

Kyle Wilkie scored for a third successive game as East Fife climbed into second place in League Two, defeating Clyde.

The Fifers moved above Queen's Park - whose game with Berwick was postponed due to the weather - after notching a fifth win in six league games.

Jamie Insall broke the deadlock, volleying home after good work by Nathan Austin shortly after half-time.

Wilkie secured the win as he swept home Ross Brown's cross after 66 minutes.
