Dunfermline Athletic

Faissal loves the view

Saturday, 21st Mar 2015

Faissal El Bakhtaoui feels that Dunfermline can go on and make the Championship play offs.

Few players in Scottish football can enjoy going to Stenhousemuir's Ochilview Park more than Faissal El Bakhtaoui. The Pars French Moroccan striker made his first ever Dunfermline Athletic start there on 2nd January last year. He scored on his debut start there and his winning fgoal there on Saturday was another reason for Faiss to cherish this unlikely venue.

"I like playing on this pitch and I enjoy coming here but it was a good day today, a good win and I am happy to be back in the team and score as well.

"I got the goal from a Andy Geggan header but I should have scored in the first half as well. It was a good chance.

"When you play a good team the pressure is coming. Every team fights against us and it makes it a hard league."

The 22 year old felt that his performance against Celtic in the Development League match on Monday at Cappielow and his efforts in training merited a start against Stenhousemuir. He feels that Dunfermline can go on and make the Championship play offs.

"If we keep going like that, keep working hard in training and on a Saturday as well, we can do something.

"We have a big game next against Morton, we need to win and every game for the next six to make the play offs. It will be pretty hard."
