Match report
A disappointing result for the visitors in this last game of 1998, unusually played on a Sunday and with a 1345 kick-off - East Fifes new stadium has as yet no lights. The Fifers started well and in 7 minutes John Martin hit a first-time shot wide. A minute later Martin was set up by Tommy Harrison but his shot was pushed onto the bar by Jim Calder. The visitors began to dominate and in 17 minutes a Barry Wilson cross was headed over his own bar by Johnston with Paul Cherry in attendance. In 21 minutes a Moffat volley screamed past the post at the other end. Wilson and Mclean both had chances for Caley Thistle before Paul Cherry was sent off in 37 minutes for a foul on Peters. Gilbert Allan opened the scoring in the last minute of the first half when he raced onto a Moffat pass and clipped it past Calder. Mike Teasdale turned the game in a five minute spell when he scored one goal and made another. In 63 minutes he headed home a Paul Sheerin cross for the equaliser then 5 minutes later he provided the cross for Scott McLean put the visitors in front with a headed goal. The lead only lasted 6 minutes before substitute Lee Dair made it 2-2 with a cracking shot from 18 yards. With Caley Thistle pressing for a winner they were devastated to lose a goal 3 minutes from time John Martin headed home to give the Fifers all 3 points. With Clyde losing and Livingston drawing, Caley Thistle end the year in second place, 6 points behind Livingston and 5 ahead of Clyde.
