Leith Athletic defeated Gala Fairydean Rovers in a match that was ultimately won by set pieces. The home side scored through a corner, a penalty and from two direct free kicks while the visitors scored a free kick of their own.
Goals from Jack Mackay, Blair Short and two from substitute Guy McGarry sealed the win for Leith who move up to 2nd in the table.
The match, which was Gala's first for five weeks, started at a frantic pace with both teams exchanging numerous chances in the first 20 minutes.
Leith, spearheaded by the busy Tyler O'Neill, were always a threat on the break and it took some smart defending by Gala's Thomas Porves to deny O'Neill when he was through on goal.
It was the home side's keeper who was busiest early on however, with Steven Chambers being called into action to produce an excellent double save first from James Delaney and then Sam Kelly who followed in on the rebound.
Kelly then fired wide moments later after a cutback from flying winger Finnen Gordon-Wooley. He then created a chance for himself but this time had his low shot saved after initially doing well to create some space on the edge of the box.
Both teams then had their first scare form set pieces. First, a Leith corner was cleared but only to Aaron Simpson whose perfectly struck half volley whistled just past the post. Gala then should have taken the lead, a driven corner from the left fell to Jack Nobel, who had peeled to the back post, but his volleyed effort went over the bar.
It was Leith's next corner, however, which opened the scoring. Just before half time in the 38th minute, Mackay took the corner from the left side and his in swinging ball fortuitously sailed over goalkeeper Joshua Bain's head and went straight into the net.
