Templehall Rovers hold on to a vital victory, that send them level on points with top of the league, after seeing their captain dismissed against a resilient East Fife side.
Coming into the match Templehall had mixed results, however they were unbeaten in their last three matches and were unbeaten in their last two home games. On the other hand East Fife were looking to make it three away wins from three as they travelled to Kirkcaldy.
Templehall Rovers started off the better of the two sides with some impressive passing moves falling apart in the final third. However the Kirkcaldy side finally made the breakthrough after Louix Cumming pounced on a loose ball from a corner whipped in by team mate Scott Graves in the 18th minute.
Graves would have scored himself later in the first half if it wasn’t for a vital block from East Fife defender Robbie Lumsden. Moments later Graves was denied again, this time his attempted dink finish was tipped behind for a corner by East Fife goalkeeper Tyler Wilson.
Going into the half time break it was certain that Templehall Rovers would be the happier of the two sides. The instructions from the Templehall Rovers coach must have been to put away more chances and continue to creatively pass through the midfield. For East Fife on the other hand they had to put more of a threat on the Templehall Rovers defence after only creating very few chances.
