The Glasgow side got off to a flying start - debutant Nicky Clark taking less than a minute to open his account for his new club when he raced on to McCulloch's flick-on and slotted home.

McCulloch had already seen one decent chance flash wide when he netted his first on 17 minutes with a neat glancing header past East Fife goalkeeper Michael Andrews.

The crossing ability of Lee Wallace was causing the visiting defence all sorts of problems and it was another accurate delivery that provided McCulloch with a routine headed finish before half-time for his second of the afternoon.

Arguably the goal of the match came from Lewis Macleod shortly after the break - his searing 20-yard volley finding the corner and leaving Andrews with no chance.

Fittingly, however, the last word went to McCulloch, who completed his trio of headers with yet another assured connection - this time converting a cross from Kyle McAusland shortly after the hour mark.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
