East Fife 4, Forfar 5! Celebrated scoreline finally comes true

Thomas Reilly earned Forfar a bonus point in yesterday’s Group B game at East Fife – and enabled a tongue-twisting result beloved of late comedian Eric Morecambe to be recorded for the first time in the fixture’s history – when he slotted home the 12th penalty in a 5-4 shoot-out success which followed a 1-1 draw.
