Match 34 brings Queen’s Park to KDM Group East End Park. Dunfermline in fifth place sit six points ahead of their visitors who currently occupy ninth place and so facing play-offs. That will no doubt mean that Calum Davidson’s Spiders will be up for a fight to get away from that position while Dunfermline need a point to ensure they extinguish any possibility of them ending up ninth.

Dunfermline and Queen’s Park have met 66 times in all competitions and the Pars have won 29 of those, drawn 18 and lost 19 but three of the last four matches have been won by the Glasgow club.

Dunfermline 0 Queen’s Park 3

Conceding three second half goals resulted in another disappointing afternoon at KDM Group East End Park.  On 66 minutes a cross from the left was glanced into the home net by TURNER. 0-1

Queen’s introduced Louis Longridge and Mackenzie Carse in 74 minutes and within a minute THOMAS found himself in the ideal place on the right side to bend a classic Dom shot into the top left corner. 0-2

With the exception of a long range shot by Thomson, the scoreline never really look threatened in the final five minutes and added time but running on to a Thomas pass, sub McKenzie CARSE managed to nip in and make it 3-0 in the third minute of time added on to further ruin the Pars day. Queen’s Park victory, their fourth in five, lifted them into seventh place. Dunfermline slipped to ninth equal on points with Inverness Caley Thistle but with an inferior goal difference.
