SPL Fanzone: Dunfermline

When a sentence begins “No disrespect to Dunfermline but...” you could rest assured what followed from those associated with Hibs would have bucketfuls of just that.

As the Pars trooped off the Hibs pitch, it was worth remembering our away form equalled that of Celtic. You would think we couldn’t wait for our next match, but the international break was a boon. With Hardie, Cardle and Barrowman back in the squad, and Buchanan and Willis giving Jim McIntyre a rare selection headache, we go to Paisley with optimism. The roar from Pars fans which greeted Martin Hardie’s return reflected the huge contribution the free-kick specialist has already made this season. Now we meet a team, St Mirren, who are similar in terms of strip, squad, league form and attractive play. It has score draw written all over it!
