EAST Fife threw away a two-goal lead to set up a relegation nail-biter in the final game of the season.

Queen of the South 2, East Fife 2

Steven Campbell got the visitors ahead in the first half. Scott McBride’s 50th minute penalty was saved, but Gareth Wardlaw made it 2-0 with 15 minutes left.

Nicky Clark’s two late goals mean East Fife have to win next week to try and avoid the relegation play-offs.

Alloa Athletic 4, Albion Rovers 1

Alloa cemented second spot for themselves and relegated Albion Rovers in the process.

A Kevin Cawley header and strikes from Stephen Simmons and Jonathan Tiffoney had Alloa 3-1 ahead, Pat Walker for Rovers. Cawley wrapped things up in 86 minutes.

Brechin City 1, Stenhousemuir 2

An EARLY David Rowson strike was added to by Jamie Reid’s left foot shot in 34 minutes as Martyn Corrigan’s men went in 2-0 leaders at the break.

Alan Trouten pulled a goal back for the home side but Stenhousemuir held on for the win.

Stranraer 0, Forfar Athletic 3

A MICK Dunlop own goal was added to by Chris Templeman and Omar Kader, but both sets of fans were keeping an ear out for other results.

Stranraer need to win on the final day to be sure of avoiding the relegation play-offs and Forfar have to hope Arbroath drop points at home.

Ayr United 0, Arbroath 1

Player-of-the-year nominee Steven Doris saw his 17th minute penalty saved by Graeme Smith.

Paul Sheerin, normally so deadly from the spot, was also foiled by Smith after a second Arbroath award in 55 minutes, but Euan Smith’s goal on the hour won it.
