Dunfermline Athletic

Preview Dundee

Tuesday, 13th Apr 2021

Scottish Championship: (home) v Dundee Tuesday 13th April 2021, kick off 6.00pm at East End Park behind closed doors but live on the BBC Scotland channel

This match was postponed exactly two months ago and with just four matches of the Championship season remaining the sides meet separated by five points. Dundee occupy third place and Dunfermline outside the play off places in fifth, so anything other than a home win will make it much harder for the Fifers to reach the play offs.

The home side won the last time these two met at East End but that was in January last year. Dundee have failed to win in their last eight visits but they will out to take the three points and move away from the Pars.

At Dens Park | P62 W14 D18 L30 GF79 GA128

The league record is pretty similar with Dunfermline winning 27 of the 55 league matches at East End Park. The Pars will hope to make it ten Dundee visits since they last won in Dunfermline.

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
