Last Twelve League matches

Mark Burchill could hold the key to success if past form is repeated; as well as scoring the winner at Almondvale in 2006, he scored a hattrick as the Pars defeated Livvy in April 2006.  Dunfermline have won two of the last dozen league meetings with Livingston, losing four with the other six ending in draws.

Neither side have hit the kind of form they had hoped for this season.  The Pars registered their second away win of this league campaign at Greenock on Boxing Day and with Jim McIntyre's caretaker era not experiencing defeat then hopes will be high to improve the Fifers record at Almondvale.
