First Team Debuts

Jamie Dolan played his 50th major competitive game for the Club.

A rousing game in which Dunfermline took the lead against the run of play with a bizarre goal. Seven minutes later they built on that and carried that twogoal advantage into the second half.

However, a tremendous fight back saw Kiell Olofsson reduce the deficit from a Jamie Dolan pass early in the second half before Maurice Malpas popped up to smash in the equaliser from a cross by the said Olofsson.

Before the end substitute Steven Thompson had a chance to win the game. But as it was we has to be satisfied with a point - the fourth time that we have drawn with the Pars this season.
