Dunfermline Athletic

Preview St Johnstone

Wednesday, 16th Jan 2008

The Saints have not won in Dunfermline since 1998, nine visits back. The match earlier in the season ended 0-0.

Dunfermline v St Johnstone

Two weeks after the last league match, its third v fourth on Saturday and Dunfermline would dearly love to narrow the gap to just one point by registering a victory. The Fifers have a good record over the Perth outfit and principally because of the performances at East End Park.
