Pars Hopeful of Evading the Dreaded Drop



Two late goals at East End Park on Saturday sent The Pars fans into raptures as they came from behind to beat relegation rivals Ayr United 2-1 in a must win battle at the wrong end of the Scottish Championship on Saturday.


Whilst it wasn’t a vintage Pars performance it is really all about getting results at this late stage of the season. With two games left, starting with Partick Thistle away on Saturday and a closing game against bottom club Queen of the South at home a week on Friday it is at least now in our own hands. Win those two and we should avoid the play offs, but it could yet come down to goal difference between us Ayr and QOS.


It has without doubt been a difficult and disappointing season for Dunfermline Athletic. A club with our resources and fan base should be up competing at the top of the table and looking to get into The Premiership where we belong. If we can survive this season, then hopefully next season can see us really kick on.


It is really vital that we do stay up because I think things off the pitch are looking much healthier. We have new German owners who have funds and plenty ideas we have an exciting new training facility being developed in Rosyth. We also have a great recent track record of improving links with the local community and schools.


I appreciate that football isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but I think a successful football team is really important to the town in terms of mental well being and just bringing a bit joy to the place.


Anyway, I’ll certainly be making that trip through to Maryhill on Saturday and keeping my fingers and toes crossed. 


Come on ye Pars!!!
