Last Time at The KDM Group East End Park
cinch Championship, Saturday 5th August 2023
Dunfermline 2 Airdrieonians 1 

Dunfermline had dominated the first 20 minutes but it took a last ditch block by Benedictus to deny the visitors an opener before Airdrie were able to take the lead in 22 minutes. Gallagher set up Telfer for a thunderous shot that rattled the crossbar but Craig WATSON swiftly reacted to head into the Pars net. 0-1

Airdrie’s lead lasted only eight minutes with Edwards on the left receiving a pass from Chalmers to provide an excellent cross that OTOO rose to head home from six yards out. 1-1

Then on 65 minutes a neat ball from Allan on the left to put Edwards in possession on the left byeline led to the second Dunfermline goal. Watson booted away the ball but ALLAN crashed the ball high into the Diamonds net to make it 2-1. A very welcome first senior goal for Dunfermline for the 23 year old who has not had the best of experiences over recent seasons through injury.

Recent Form

Dunfermline are now undefeated in their last four games and have taken 8 points from the last 12 available. Their win over Ayr United on Saturday was their first home win in six but hopefully the formula has been discovered and Tuesday night will be another home win.

Airdrieonians have taken four points from the last 12 available to them and they have won only once in the last five games.  Their away form is impressive however with wins over Dundee United, Raith Rovers and Queen’s Park in their last three matches on the road.
