East Fife brush aside East Stirling

East Fife moved level on points with second-placed Queen's Park following a 3-1 win against East Stirling.
East Stirling took an early lead when Kris Faulds' free-kick was glanced in by the head of East Fife player-manager Gary Naysmith.
It was all square in the 17th minute when Kyle Wilkie collected the ball on the left and cut inside before drilling the ball into the bottom corner.
The visitors took the lead seven minutes later when Wilkie was brought down by Aron Lynas in the box. Nathan Austin's spot-kick was saved by Richard Barnard but he slotted home the loose ball.
East Stirling boss Craig Tully was sent from the sidelines by referee Gavin Ross before the break after he took umbrage with a decision.
His side were on top at the start of the second half as Michael McMullin fired over the stand while East Fife's Wilkie was wayward with another effort.
The visitors wrapped up the win with three minutes remaining when a Scott Mercer corner fell to Alistair Coote and he drilled the ball into the net.
