Dunfermline Athletic

Preview Airdrieonians

Wednesday, 13th Nov 2013

Airdrie United were defeated 2-1 by the Pars in the last match between the teams at East End Park in September.

Martin Hardie free kick for Airdrie

Dunfermline travel to face Airdrie United on Saturday and yet again they face a side that is bottom of the table but bearing in mind their experiences against similarly placed Forfar Athletic and East Fife this will be no easy fixture. The Lanarkshire club lost 2-0 at Ibrox last time out but apparently did very well against the league leaders.
