Queen of the South 0-2 Dunfermline
Sat, 3rd Sep 2022

A commanding first half performance earned the Pars an important victory at Palmerston Park.

A sustained period of early pressure earned the Fifers the opener. Macdonald provided the cross and TODOROV rose about his defender to deflect the ball home. The striker’s fifth goal of the season, 19 minutes on the clock and the visitors one up.

The Pars would go 2-0 up in the first minute of time added on at the end of the first half. David Mackay was shown yellow in conceding a free kick 25 yards out on the right side and the Fifers converted from the setplay.

It was not without controversy however since the assistant referee raised his flag for offside. Rhys BREEN had slid in to net at the far post to meet Chalmers delivery and after referee Stewart Luke consulted his linesman he awarded the goal it being deemed that the ball reached Rhys off Cochrane, an opposition player. Following the previous week’s disallowed goal Breen was eventually able to celebrate.

The home side tried hard to recover for the next 45 minutes but the Pars saw the match out to go top of the table.

Recent Form

Looking to make it three wins from three in the league, manager Marvin Bartley took his side to Kelty Hearts last weekend and left following an emphatic Kelty win. Queen of the South have not enjoyed the best of results since their relegation from the Championship last season. They have lost 14 of their 35 matches this season and they have won just three of their eight league matches since they drew at The KDM Group East End Park in December.

Dunfermline have lost only three times this season in all competitions and are undefeated in the league since October. They have played seven league games since last playing Queens, winning five and drawing two.
