Dunfermline Athletic

Preview Morton

Saturday, 10th Dec 2016

Ladbrokes Championship: Saturday 10th December, 3.00pm kick off at East End Park

Dunfermline have found it tough winning points in this Championship season and although they welcome another home fixture the shape of the visitors is something to fear. Morton have lost only one of their last ten Championship matches and they have won the last five matches against the Pars.

Morton have already defeated the Pars at Cappielow and so hopefully at East End Park it will be revenge this time. .

Last Match v Morton
Saturday 17th September 2016

The first meeting this season was seven weeks ago at Cappielow. Gary Oliver broke away to open the scoring in 24th minute, Nicky Clark equalised six minutes later but Jai Quitongo hit the winner with just six minutes remaining.

Allan Johnston said of the game:-
"I think they had three shots and scored from two. That kind of sums up our last few games, we are getting punished for everything just now but there are no excuses. We are miles better than that, we never played as well as what we could do."
