Having just secured four points out of six against the top two in League 1, East Fife boss Barry Smith is looking for the same application from his players tonight when they face a side sitting second bottom of the division.
The Methil men drew with second top Alloa on Saturday, a result that came hot on the heels of a victory at the home of league leaders Livingston.
Now, East Fife will travel to face struggling Albion Rovers, a team they comfortably beat at the start of this month at Bayview.
However, Smith has warned that this evening’s match at Cliftonhill will be anything but a foregone conclusion.
The manager said: “We are happy with the way we are playing at the moment and if we had been offered four points out of six from games against the top two beforehand we probably would have taken them.
“We were also delighted to have secured two clean sheets in the games.
“I thought a draw was a fair result against Alloa but we showed the effort and determination to keep going right to the end.
“The lads were not content with a draw and did not shut up shop against a good side that came down from the league above this season.
“However, our attention now turns to another tough game against Albion Rovers.
“We got a good result when we played them recently at home but I have already warned the players that they have to be prepared for a different game at Cliftonhill which is never an easy place to go to.
“I don’t want any excuses and I would not expect them from the lads. Instead, we should travel with a wee bit of confidence.
“We have gone on a good run and are in a healthy position in the league but we are just concentrating on Albion Rovers.”
Tony Wallace, Kyle Wilkie and Mark Lamont will miss out through injury.
