Dunfermline V Arbroath at East End Park : Match Preview

Dunfermline V Arbroath - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.


No concerns for Pars

Dunfermline have a fully-fit and suspension free squad to choose from as they host a bottom-of-the-table Arbroath side who won 3-2 at East End Park on their last visit.


Manager Jim Jefferies said: "All I will be asking the players to do is to repeat the performance they put in to win 3-0 over Ayr on Saturday. They closed their opponents down really quickly and worked hard throughout and everyone here is keen to get a play-off place secured as soon as possible.


"Arbroath are fighting for their lives so this will be a really tough encounter against a side that are good going forward."


Arbroath goalkeeper Scott Morrison is an injury doubt, while midfielder Connor Birse (knee) remains sidelined.


Player-manager Paul Sheerin said: "We are a side that can score goals but we are a side that, when we lose a goal, are liable to lose another one quickly.


"It is probably a concentration thing and we need to do better especially against a strong Dunfermline side.


"Dunfermline away is not an easy game, however when you are at the bottom there are no easy games. We won there before and it would be great to do it again."
