East Fife unable to keep up
East Fife have not won in four matches having lost their last two. That's seen their league cup campaign get off to an utterly woeful start. Things don't get better as Dundee United come to town. Dundee United have won four on the spin and had collected three draws prior to that giving them a seven game unbeaten streak. They already boast a better team so better form and more confidence spells trouble for an East Fife side that have lost 3-0 and 2-0 in their last two games; Dundee United have scored 12 in their last four.
A win and a shutout
12 goals scored in the last four might sound impressive for Dundee United. It is. Their defensive record is pretty damn good too though; they've only conceded three goals in their last six matches recording three clean sheets in the same time period. With the fact that East Fife are a) seen as inferior anyway given their place in the pyramid and b) have failed to score in their last two, this should be like taking candy from a baby for Dundee United.
Shankland to score
Our final tip brings us to an anytime scorer prediction, which isn't necessarily the most straight forward tip to make. Despite that, we are highly confident that Lawrence Shankland is a good bet to find the net against an East Fife side that haven't kept a clean sheet since April 1st. Shankland is a man in form with three goals in his last three games; he's played under an hour in two of those appearances. His confidence is sky high and any chance will be gobbled up.

Lawrence Shankland is a huge part of their impressive form and will be their main danger man.
