Milestones
John Eustace scored his first goal for the Club.

The least said about this display the better. Manager Paul Sturrock was one of the lucky ones being abroad on a scouting mission. We were simply never at the races against a rampant Hearts side. Ironically, in the wake of our heaviest defeat of the season, Dunfermline's defeat at Dens Park confirmed our Premier status for next season.
