Ross County Hospitality Dec 2009

The Pars return to East End Park on Saturday for just the second time in the last six weeks. Last home game was an impressive 3-1 win over Ian McCall`s Partick and Jim McIntyre will be hoping that his team can erase the disappointment of last Saturday`s defeat at Somerset Park by taking three points off third placed Ross County.

Ross County v Dunfermline

Goals from Scott Thomson, Nick Phinn and Steven Bell meant the Pars won the first ever league match between the clubs 3-1 at East End Park in September 2008. The Staggies then won the next two before the Pars won 3-1 in Dingwall on a Tuesday night towards the end of last season.  Earlier this season the teams ended 0-0 in a hugely entertaining midweek match at Victoria Park.

County`s three away wins have been at Airdrie, Inverness and Greenock.  Only league leaders Dundee have won more league games in this division this season meaning they have amassed 28 points and sit proudly in third place.  Dunfermline are four points behind but the Fifers badly need a win to make sure that they don`t fall too far behind Jocky Scott`s Dees who have 33 points.
