Dunfermline Athletic

Preview Airdrieonians

Saturday, 14th Nov 2015

Pars are unbeaten in their last seven matches, have not conceded in the last five league matches but Airdrieonians are the last side to score a league goal against them.

After two back to back goalless draws, Dunfermline Athletic travel to the Excelsior Stadium to face Airdrieonians on Saturday desperate to get back to winning ways. The Lanarkshire team sit third in League One seven points behind the Pars but Airdrieonians have become a bit of a bogey team for the Fifers who have won only once in the last seven meetings. Stats
