Match Report


Newspaper extract from Sunday Mail.

Goal ace Matt Dyer scored his second goal in two weeks then admitted he thought the game should have been called off.

Gale force winds and torrential rain ensured this game was never a classic.

But Fifer's hot-shot Dyer was delighted to earn his basement battlers a share of the spoils after having lost THIRTEEN goals against Dundee in their last two clashes.

He said: "It was a tough battle out there. The conditions weren't the best but we battled away and got a good result.

"The pitch was pretty heavy and it was windy which doesn't make for good games so perhaps the referee should have considered calling it off.

"But that's my second goal in two weeks and there's still a few games before the end of the season to score a few more of them."

Dyer hit the Fifers' goal in 68 minutes with a header from a Liam Baillie cross.

But sub Lee Power - only on the park a few minutes - headed home an Ian Anderson cross for the equaliser after 72 minutes.

East Fife boss Jimmy Bone said: "The weather was the real winner again and that's a couple of games in a row that's happened.

"But we're happy enough in terms of effort which was first class as we tried to play football on a very tough pitch.

"I think the signs are there that we're definitely improving. This game showed we're no easy touch.

"Now we want to take points in every game."

Dundee gaffer John McCormack was disappointed his side only managed a draw.

McCormack said: "It's points dropped. We probably created enough chances throughout the game but all credit to East Fife.

"The conditions made a difference but we could have gone in at half time in front.

"I thought we lost a terrible goal. It was the result of bad defending and a lapse of concentration but we can't use the weather as an excuse.

"We should have got all three points but now we've just got to get on with the rest of the campaign."
