Dylan McGowan was man-of-the-match as East Fife defeated Stenhousemuir 2-0 in Scotland's Second Division on the weekend.

The 19-year old was at the heart of the Fifers' defence as they scored once in each half to move clear of the drop zone with their first win in four matches.

McGowan is on loan to East Fife from Scottish Premier League club Heart of Midlothian and has now appeared six times for the coastal club.

The Australian U20 is due back in Edinburgh to again link up with Hearts at the end of the season as he continues his development in a regular first team environment.
