Having just equalled the record for 17 league matches undefeated Dunfermline welcome their closest neighbours back to The KDM Group East End Park. The league leaders hope to continue picking up points to maintain their eleven point advantage at the top of League One.

Kelty Hearts have now secured their League One status for next season, a play off place is probably beyond them but a local derby will no doubt give them the edge they need.

Last time against Kelty Hearts


Dunfermline 2-1 Kelty Hearts
Sat, 29th Oct 2022

A long ball from Breen deceived Cammy Logan allowing Craig Wighton to cut back from the left byeline, the perfect assist for TODOROV. The striker crashed home from eight yards out through both central defenders and keeper Darren Jamieson. 1-0

An equaliser came on the half hour. Higginbotham hung on to possession on the right side of the penalty box until he was able to off load a chance for a shot. The first was blocked but when Darren LYON latched on to the next chance his left footed curling shot from 25 yards out on the right flew into the far side of the Dunfermline net. 1-1

Ten minutes into the second half Todd, Edwards and Mochrie exchanged passes wide left before the Dundee United loanee made an impressive run inside. He slid a defence splitting pass through to the inrunning Comrie on the right side of the Kelty box and his return was netted by WIGHTON. A great move that turned out to win the match.
