Match Preview

Pars to check on duo Dunfermline manager Jim McIntyre will not be able to finalise the First Division champions' line-up for their match against local rivals Falkirk until close to kick-off. Full-back Callum Woods and midfielder Martin Hardie are both rated at 50-50 and McIntyre is giving the pair until the last minute to prove their fitness. Midfielder Steven Bell continues to be ruled out with an Achilles injury. McIntyre said: "This is a huge day for Dunfermline as we will receive the First Division trophy and we do not want the party to fall flat. "Falkirk is always a huge game for us and I want to remain undefeated against them this season." Falkirk end their season without suspended midfielder Mark Millar, but youngster Stephen Kingsley is available after a ban. On-loan Rangers defender Ross Perry could return after injury and Bairns boss Steven Pressley has added rookies Connor Kelly and Jay Fulton to his squad to gain some derby day experience. Pressley said: "This is a big occasion for Dunfermline but it is a big derby match as well and it would be a great game for Falkirk to go and win. "We have a number of young lads who will be getting their first taste of a derby atmosphere so it will stand them in good stead for the future. "Our recent good run ended last week against Ross County but this would be a cracking game to pick things up again in."

Match Report

Pars finish in style Dunfermline celebrated their promotion to the Scottish Premier League with a final day 3-0 derby victory over Falkirk. Jim McIntyre`s side, who received the First Division trophy, ensured the promotion party at East End Park was not gatecrashed by their local rivals as they finished the campaign a full 10 points clear at the summit. Nick Phinn broke the deadlock for Dunfermline in the 21st minute, getting his head on David Graham`s cross from the right to hand the hosts a deserved lead from a first half short of goalscoring opportunities. The Pars midfielder repeated the trick eight minutes after the restart, again heading in a ball from the right from 12 yards, this time delivered by Steven McDougall. Patrick Clarke rounded off the scoring in the closing stages with a volley into the top corner from 12 yards to get the celebrations really flowing.
