Preview DundeeSaturday, 13th Feb 2021
Scottish Championship: (home) v Dundee Saturday 13th February 202, kick off 3.00pm at East End Park behind closed doors
Dunfermline`s 4-1 win over Raith Rovers in their last home match should give the Fifers confidence going into this important Championship match. The weather got the better of Dundee`s scheduled fixtures last Saturday and on Tuesday night but after playing just 13 matches they remain in a play off position. Dunfermline in third place are four points better off but have played two more matches.
The home side won the last time these two met at East End but that was over a year ago now. Dundee have failed to win in their last eight visits but they will out to take the three points and close on the Pars.

Championship, Friday 24th January 2020
Dunfermline 2 Dundee 0
The Pars went ahead in 28th minute when Danny Devine embarked on a run into the Dundee half. He played in Euan Murray to his left who slipped the ball on for Dom Thomas. The on loan Kilmarnock player did really well to fend off the challenge of Cammy Kerr and his cross was met six yards out with a diving header from Ryan DOW. 1-0
Five minutes before half time Kevin NISBET dispossessed young Cameron just inside the Dundee half, raced away and having cut inside from the left, smashed the ball into the far side of the net from the edge of the box. 2-0
