Dunfermline Athletic

Preview Stenhousemuir

Saturday, 14th Feb 2015

Both Dunfermline and Stenhousemuir were without a fixture last Saturday as their perspective opponents, Brechin City and Stranraer, were invloved in Scottish Cup action.

There have been 72 league meetings between these teams. The Fifers have won 36, Stenhousemuir 18 and 18 matches have been drawn.

Last season's games between Dunfermline and Stenhousemuir were thrilling affairs. The first fixture back in August at Ochilview saw the Fifers come back from three goals down to win 5-4 scoring three goals in the last six minutes of the match. In November's home game Dunfermline came back from twice being behind to win 3-2 with a 92nd minute Allan Smith strike. 

That was followed up with a New Year fixture at Ochilview where yet again it was a late late show from the Pars. This time Stenny thought they had gained some retribution with an equaliser six minutes from full time only to suffer from a 91st minute winner from Andy Geggan that made it 2-1. The last meeting was a disappointing 0-0 draw at East End Park.
