Dunfermline Athletic 1 Greenock Morton 4
Sat, 23rd Feb 2013
If this match did one thing, other than confirm what we’ve really known for weeks about the Pars’ promotion chances, it was to underline the old adage that if things are not going your way, they really don’t go your way. After being well on top for half an hour, the Pars suddenly found themselves trailing to a penalty that went in off a post. After missing one of their own, they conceded two more goals at the start of the second half, a fourth just after the hour, with only a Morris goal providing any sort of consolation.

Falkirk 1 Dunfermline Athletic 0
Sun, 17th Feb 2013
When things aren’t going your way, they really don’t go your way. The Pars played well, and although Falkirk had missed a couple of decent chances, for long periods it looked as if there could only be one winner. However, a late goal from substitute Weatherston combined with yet another injury, this time to Falkingham, completed a bad week for the Pars.

Cowdenbeath 4 Dunfermline Athletic 2
Wed, 13th Feb 2013
Dunfermline don’t lose at Cowdenbeath terribly often - the last time coincided with one hit wonders the Floaters topping the charts with “Float on” back in August 1977. It’s also more than 60 years since the Blue Brazil scored 4 against the Pars in a league match, which probably pre-dates their nickname (although they did manage to knock 4 past Jim Herriot in the Spring Cup in 1976), so those 1330 souls who ventured out witnessed something special (even if for some it didn’t feel that way). Remarkably, the Pars were looking like unlikely winners after Dowie and Kirk had scored midway through the second half, but 3 long-range strikes in 10 minutes saw the home team as deserved victors.

Hamilton Academical 1 - 2 Dunfermline Athletic
Sat, 9th Feb 2013
The Pars suddenly and inexplicably regained some form, with a decent win over the team that had dumped them out of the cup the week before. Andy Kirk ended his scoring drought with a header late in the first half before Kane scored his first goal for the club mid-way through the second. Accies soon got one back, and the Pars were clinging on a bit at the end, but held out for the three points.

Dunfermline Athletic 0 - 2 Hamilton Academical
Sat, 2nd Feb 2013
Off-field events appear to be catching up with the Pars as they delivered another insipid performance, despite an unusual but generous private sponsorship offer, in what had seemed a “must win” game. After Hamilton had missed two veritable sitters, Stevie May shot the visitors ahead early in the second half with an absolute cracker, and a good Routledge finish soon after ensured it was the visitors who can look forward to the potential of a money-spinning tie in the quarter finals. What the Pars can look forward to is questionable.
The Pars face Hamilton in the William Hill Scottish Cup 5th round tie. Accies performed poorly at Dumbarton last Saturday and are likely to have skipper Alex Neil back after suspension. Defender Conner McGlinchey left the club in midweek and it could be that his place will be taken by Stephen Hendrie.
The Pars have been one of the leading contenders for promotion this term although their ambitions have been dented by recent results, with two home defeats in the last two matches. They will go into this game without suspended striker Andy Barrowman.
