Dunfermline Athletic

Preview Queen of the South

Saturday, 15th Apr 2023

cinch League One (home) v Queen of the South, Saturday 15th April 2023, kick off 3.00pm at The KDM Group East End Park

Queen of the South will come to The KDM Group East End Park on Saturday seriously attempting to spoil Dunfermline’s party. A win for home side would secure the league title and promotion to the Championship where both these teams played last season.

The Doonhamers own hopes of promotion through the play offs have not been extinguished as their recent form has made that a possibility. They sit three points behind Alloa in the third play off place and seemingly fear no one these days. They will be desperately seeking points from this and their final three league matches against Montrose, Airdrieonians and Kelty Hearts.

Last Time at the KDM Group East End Park


Dunfermline 1-1 Queen of the South
Sat, 3rd Dec 2022

The points were shared after substitute Nikolay Todorov headed home the equaliser following Ruari Paton’s opener for the visitors just before the break. Both sides had chances to win the match but after a lacklustre performance the Pars were relieved their unbeaten home record remained intact.

When Dunfermline lost possession midway inside the Queens’ half, the ball was quickly played to Connelly and thence to an unmarked Ruari PATON 10 yards out and he was able to slip the ball under Mehmet.

Midway through the second half, the equaliser came when a quickly taken shy allowed Comrie to cross from the right and TODOROV to score an easy header from close range.
