East Fife boss Barry Smith reckoned it was a point gained at the weekend as his side played out a goalless draw with Queen’s Park.
Normally dropping two points at home would be a source of frustration, but with other results in the race to reach the end of season play-offs going their way, Smith said it was important his side simply took something.
The point ensured East Fife remain in fourth place, ahead of Airdrieonians on goal difference and with Queen’s further back.
Smith said: “It’s a point gained and keeps us in the same position we were before the game.
“It wasn’t a great game by any stretch of the imagination but at this stage of the season there won’t be many.
“Given where we are in the league we should still be playing with confidence but looked a bit nervy at times. But credit to them, they got the clean sheet although I think we could have done a bit more when we had the ball.”
The game started brightly, but matters weren’t helped when the skies opened and a heavy downpour made conditions difficult for the players.
Both sides were guilty of misplacing passes, with the ball skidding out of play on the sodden surface.
Queen’s Park started the second half better and had the best of the rest of the game, but struggled to test Mark Hurst in the home goal.
