Dunfermline Athletic

Preview Airdrieonians

Saturday, 2nd May 2015

The last match of Dunfermline Athletic's disappointing season takes them to the Excelsior Stadium to face Airdrieonians.

The Lanarkshire team has already secured fifth place but cannot catch Brechin City above them since there is a four point difference. The Pars are two places below their opponents and a win could take them to sixth dependant upon Peterhead not managing to take one point at title chasing Morton.
