Dunfermline host a pre season friendly against Kilmarnock on Tuesday night. The teams had contrasting fortunes last season both exiting the Championship after a season where the eventual champions won both their home games and drew on both visits to East End Park.
Derek McInnes’ side has been preparing for their return to the Premiership with a friendly at Falkirk and then a short spell on the Costa Del Sol where they played Lincoln Red Imps and Charlton Athletic.

Sat, 26th Feb 2022There was much disappointment with the single point from this match since Dunfermline had the best chance of the game when Efe Ambrose, on his home debut, hit the crossbar in the second half.
The game would finish without a goal and the point was enough to keep the Pars ahead of Queen of the South. Dunfermline thwarted Kilmarnock’s efforts to win three games in a row but with both sides seeking three points, a point a piece was probably the right result.
