Ross County Rams at Dunfermline Athletic Patriots

Whilst the whole mantra of not changing a winning side is good in theory, the difference Gardyne made was clear to see. Dunfermline either did themselves in and couldn't keep up the work rate, or thought that one goal was enough. After McKay's equaliser (which I see Crawford has said was onside) there was an air of inevitably we'd get the second.

It wasn't a classic performance by any stretch of the imagination, but how many of those have we had this year?

Our next two league games we should win with no problem, and then it's the big double header which will tell us if we are going up as Champions or not. A massive month in front of the club.

They need to get back to the 4-4-2/4-5-1 with Mullin and Gardyne on the flanks.

The concern, as always, is the number of injuries they're picking up. Semple could barely run for the Dunfermline goal.

The team's crying out for Harry Paton, at least on the bench.

It was a struggle to see with the low sun in our faces, but the 1st half was awful and we were fortunate to be only one down at HT. No width, apart from the ineffective McManus (who has deserved a stint in that position after his performance at Motherwell), and again we seem reluctant to make a change in personnel/shape when it clearly isn't working. Maybe SKSF thought we could hang on until HT.
The changes were made and the 2nd half was completely different, Midge creating havoc on the left and Fraser/Lindsay working well down the right.
We got better the longer the game went on.

We weren't sure why Semple disappeared at HT, but watching the highlights back he looks very slow.
Boyle slotted in well and looked composed.
Kenny is improving with each game.
Good options on the bench, Mullin, Armstrong, plus Cowie and Vigurs? to come back.

From the highlights there did not look much in it for the offside goal. Gardyne as well I take it? Hard to see watching on low res with terrible internet.

Lindsay ball from the right into Billy McKay who finished off the post.
