The Wasps recorded only their second 0-0 draw of the season in a tightly contested game which lacked clear cut chances at either at Methil today. Both teams have been in good form, "The Wasps" having won their last 4 games, while East Fife had only lost once in the league since ex Alloa Athletic manager, Barry Smith took charge in middle of December, 2016.
The game marked Alloa Athletic striker Greig Spence making his 100th first team appearances for the club and it was no surprise that the top goalscorer came closest to opening the scoring in the first half but his shot after being closed down by Ross Brown went over the bar.
