Match Preview

McCormack still missing for County Ross County defender Darren McCormack remains sidelined through injury for the clash with Dunfermline at Victoria Park. Other than that, manager Jimmy Calderwood has a fully-fit squad to choose from. Calderwood believes a good start is crucial against the title-chasing Pars. He said: "We have to start this game well as we may not get a chance to get back into things if we give Dunfermline the initiative. "Beating Morton on Saturday was a great result, however we made it harder than it needed to be by starting slowly. "We need more wins to move away from the trouble we are in. "We have drawn twice with Dunfermline since I started my job here and it would be great to make it third time lucky with a win." Dunfermline are again likely to be without a number of players as they attempt to move top of the First Division with victory. Neil McGregor, Steven Bell, Nicky Phinn, Joe Cardle, Andy Kirk and Ryan Thomson all expected to miss out through injury. It is a third meeting in five weeks between the sides with East End Park manager Jim McIntyre determined to win after two draws. He said: "We know them quite well so we are aware of their strengths. "We have got to go there and look to impose our game plan on them in order to win and one thing we have to do better is make sure our final ball is of the highest standard."

Match Report

Hardie sends Dunfermline top Martin Hardie netted a stoppage-time winner to move Dunfermline to the top of the table after a 1-0 win over Ross County. Steven Milne had a chance to open the scoring for County but he failed to direct his 12-yard strike on target while Richard Brittain fired over from distance. County pushed for an opener after the interval but Michael Gardyne blazed his shot wide before Hardie struck a long-range effort over the bar as Dunfermline came back into the game. County top-scorer Andrew Barrowman almost added to his season`s tally but he shot straight at Chris Smith from close range. It was the visitors who broke the deadlock in the 90th minute when Hardie headed in Joe Cardle's dangerous cross from close range.
