Dunfermline Athletic

Preview Peterhead

Tuesday, 11th Apr 2023

cinch League One (away) Tuesday 11th April 2023, kick off 7.45pm at the Balmoor Stadium.

The next three points are always the most important to manager James McPake but Dunfermline’s next league match away to Peterhead, just their second league match there since January 2016, could be one of major significance.

In total Dunfermline and Peterhead have met fourteen times, the Blue Toon have won once in 2015/16 season, the Pars have won seven including the last time in Peterhead and six matches have been drawn including the first meeting this season at the KDM Group East End Park.

Sat, 19th Nov 2022

The Fifers went ahead in tenth minute when Matthew TODD found himself in a good position to shoot from 30 yards out. With the away crowd shouting ‘shoot’ he responded with a shot that would take a deflection en route to the Blue Toon net. 0-1.

A second Pars goal came on 19 minutes. Fisher won possession in his own half to break up the right and picked out MOCHRIE with a good low cross field pass. The on loan Dundee United midfielder finished in style from just inside the Peterhead box. 0-2

Thereafter a professional performance saw the Pars master the conditions and their opponents to take the three points back down the A90.
