Wednesday, 12th Feb 2014

The Pars have failed to win at Station Park in their last four visits and have conceded ten goals there in their last three

Darren Hill hurts Shaun Byrne

Dunfermline Athletic are back at Station Park on Saturday to face Forfar Athletic and its a venue and an opposition that Dunfermline have struggled with of late. In December the Pars snatched a late equaliser to avoid defeat to Forfar at East End Park. The Pars have failed to win at Station Park in their last four visits and have conceded ten goals there in their last three matches.  

Last time Forfar sat bottom of the table after losing 3-0 to Arbroath previous Saturday and the Pars travelled north on the back of the confidence building 5-1 demolition of Ayr United. The result was a 4-0 win for Forfar Athletic!
