Last time away to Clyde
Division One, 21st March 2009
Clyde 1 Dunfermline 4

When Austin McCann sent over a fourth minute cross PHINN had the easiest of tasks to head the ball into the net from six yards. Keeper Cherrie stood motionless as the ball hit his net and the Pars were off to a great start. 0-1

The lead doubled in 37 minutes when a good pass to the right by Phinn was controlled by WOODS before he smashed the ball passed the helpless keeper. The two goal cushion lasted just 60 seconds however.  A suspect back pass from Glass put Gallacher in trouble.  Pat Clarke`s effort rebounded right to Ruari McLENNAN who had a simple job to slot the ball home from 16 yards.

The Pars increased their lead in 51 minutes after Bell worked the ball into the box, taking a return from Graham to pick out BURKE with a square ball and the wee man drilled it into the far right of the goal to make it 1-3.

A fourth Pars goal followed in 62 minutes when a break down the right channel by Phinn was switched right to Woods.  The right back had sprinted into a good position and his cross hit the crossbar bouncing back inviting PHINN to ram the ball past Cherrie from close range.
