Ladbrokes League One: 3.00pm kick off at East End Park

Dunfermline's next match will be at home against Ian McCall's Ayr United who have been rival title contenders all season. Last Saturday the gap between the teams returned to ten points as the Pars took three points at Stenhousemuir and Ayr United were beaten 2-1 at home to Peterhead. The Somerset Park club will be hoping to narrow the gap with a repeat of their win at East End Park back in September.

The record book reveals that in the league the Pars have won 42 to Ayr's 27, 22 have been drawn.
