Arbroath 1 East Fife 1

TODD LUMSDEN launched a scathing attack on ref Euan Anderson after a penalty call failed to go Arbroath’s way.

Anderson turned down the Red Lichties appeals after Andy Ryan appeared to have his feet swiped by East Fife keeper Ryan Goodfellow. Gayfield Park boss Lumsden said: “The only person in the stadium who didn’t think that was a penalty was the referee. “How he didn’t give that I have no idea. Our player was clean through and had absolutely no reason to dive.”

Jonathan Page blasted in from six yards in 13 minutes before Craig Watson levelled with a bullet header.

Ryan, who rounded Goodfellow before falling to the deck, then copped a yellow card for simulation 15 minutes from time.

Fifers boss Gary Naysmith said: “I didn’t see it clearly.”
