History of the East Fife v Peterhead fixture

East Fife prepare to entertain Peterhead at Bayview Stadium on Sunday afternoon, looking to improve on a dire past record against their opponents. It does not make pleasant reading, winning just 3 of the 14 games played, and losing 9.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Bayview Stadium was earlier this season, the Fifers carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a Scottish Division Two match.
