Dunfermline 0 - 1 Dundee United: United progress to semi final

It’s only November but Dunfermline must already have had enough of playing Dundee United. This was the fourth meeting of the two this season – the second within five days – and the Tannadice men have won the lot. A Mark Durnan goal after just eight minutes was enough to settle this one and take United into the semi-finals of the Irn-Bru Cup in an encounter which underlined the starkly contrasting fortunes of the two sides at the moment.

Dunfermline 0 - 0 Raith Rovers: Fifers finish all square

For a game that had so many plus points for Dunfermline, they had to content themselves with only one in the end and ironically they ended up dropping another place down the Championship ladder. This was only the Pars’ second clean sheet of the season, but at the other end their normally prolific attack dried up as well, as this second Fife derby of the season ended in stalemate. Raith took 45 minutes to turn the ignition key and in the end were probably the happier with the outcome.
