Match Preview

Burke below-Par Experienced Dunfermline midfielder Alex Burke misses out against visitors Morton through injury. Defender Alex Keddie completes a two match suspension and midfielder Steven Bell is also out because of a ban. The Pars players are being asked to show the consistency that was missing from their play last season by building on their fine win over Falkirk last Saturday. Assistant boss Gerry McCabe said: "This is another difficult game but the perfect one to show everyone that we have learned from last season when a good result would be followed by an indifferent one. "Morton are a good side with tricky players that we will need to look out for." Morton will be without defender David MacGregor, winger David O'Brien and striker Brian Graham through injury. Manager Allan Moore is looking forward to taking his side back to one of his former grounds. He said: "I was a Dunfermline player for four and a half years and have been back with Stirling Albion but this feels a bit different. "It feels more of an even challenge. Morton are a full-time club on a par with Dunfermline and we will go there with nothing to fear. "We will look to give more than a good account of ourselves."

Match Report

Kirk brace downs Morton Dunfermline left it late as they secured a comfortable 2-0 win over Morton at East End Park. Morton began with intent and came close to breaking the deadlock after just two minutes when Michael Tisder drilled a shot narrowly wide. The pressure continued to build and Graeme Holmes handed Grant Evans the chance to find the net, however he managed to head over from six yards. The Ton were punished for their lack of cutting edge in front of goal as Dunfermline rounded off a spell of pressure in the 77th minute with a goal as Andy kirk crashed in a volley into the top of the net. And six minutes later Kirk was on-hand to round off the victory, angling a superb header past Colin Stewart from William Gibson's left-wing free-kick.
