Following Scottish Cup and SPFL Trust Trophy exits to Championship sides, Dunfermline Athletic returned to league business last weekend against Clyde at the Fountain of Youth Stadium, home of Hamilton Academical, on Match-Day 21 for the Pars in SPFL cinch League One.Read more
Dunfermline Athletic were back in action on Saturday afternoon following Tuesday`s postponed SPFL Trust Trophy Quarter-Final tie with Dundee.
It was Top vs Bottom in SPFL cinch League One as the Pars faced Peterhead at KDM Group East End Park; the first home match of 2023 and the first time the players could run out to Into The Valley for over a month.
But, the players certainly made up for lost time over the 90 minutes.
A damp night in Dundee ended in disappointment for Dunfermline Athletic, as their SPFL Trust Trophy Quarter-Final tie against Gary Bowyer`s men was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
The City of Discovery side hadn`t announced a pitch inspection through the day and it was only as fans were arriving to the turnstiles that Match Referee, Graham Grainger, highlighted concerns regarding the playing surface – and after a quick check alongside his Assistant Referees, the match was deemed unplayable.
Admittedly no-one likes to look back through their team’s most painful losses, but sometimes it can act as cathartic therapy. With the Pars looking on course for a return to the second tier of Scottish football in 2022/23, looking at the bad beats of years past will seem like water off a duck’s back to many fans.
