Forfar Athletic made it four victories in a row against East Fife this season when they defeated them again on Saturday with a 2-0 scoreline, writes Sarah McLean.

Despite some chances in the first half it wasn’t until the 68th minute that the Loons took the lead with a goal from Chris Templeman. With 10 minutes remaining Ross Campbell increased the deficit to two to make it 2-0 and secure the three points at Station Park.

Now the Loons have a busy few weeks ahead of them starting this Saturday with an away day to Glebe Park to face Brechin City in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup.

Then on Tuesday (December 3) they travel to Ibrox to face Rangers in a fixture re-arranged from November 16.

Brechin City didn’t have such a good day on Saturday away to Dunfermline Athletic.

The home side took the lead courtesy of Ryan Wallace three minutes in. An own goal by Ewan Moyes extended The Pars lead in 22 minutes.

With 10 minutes left Paul McLean pulled back a goal for the visitors but with three minutes on the clock Wallace sealed the deal to make it 3-1 and keep the three points at East End Park.

On Monday night Arbroath suffered a 3-0 defeat at the hands of league leaders Rangers at Gayfield.

Jon Daly opened the scoring for the visitors in less than two minutes. A Bradley Donaldson own goal and a shot by Nicky Clark were enough to see the three points secured by half-time.

The win took Rangers 11 points clear at the top of the table while Arbroath are in eighth.

In League Two Montrose had a great comeback against Elgin City with a 3-3 draw at Links Park.

Dennis Wyness took the visitors into the lead 20 minutes in before Paul Watson equalised 10 minutes later. Just on half-time Wyness had his second.

In the 52nd minute it didn’t look good for Montrose when Craig Gunn made it 3-1 but goals from Scott Johnston and Watson again with three minutes to go was enough to see them share the points.

This Saturday Montrose travel north to face Peterhead who are just a point above them in the league with 20.
