Manager's Programme Notes

In recent years Dunfermline have come to Tannadice as one of the league's most forceful challengers along with a reputation of being a big noise in European circles.

This season the Pars are in the unusual position of not having won a game, bottom of the table and out of the glamour Texaco cup tourney. But let us not kid ourselves. The talent on the books at East End Park is such that this state of affairs must surely dramatically change soon and I'm in no doubt they will prove to be difficult opponents for us today.

Last Saturday we ran into our usual luck at Kilmarnock and lost our third game of the season. After going ahead through an Alan Gordon goal mid way through the first half, it looked as if we were on the way to ending the Rugby Park jinx. But against the run of play the home men managed to grab a couple of goals and no matter how we tried, that's the way things ended.

It was a similar story the week before against Airdrie. Chances galore
were created but somehow we just couldn't cash in on them all. I feel the
time is coming when our luck in front of goal will change and some side will suffer!

Once we can step up our goals tally, our league position will naturally
improve. Perhaps a fully fit Kenny Cameron could be the answer. The centre has certainly had an unfortunate season so far. At Newcastle he suffered a knee injury which kept him out until the Dundee derby on September 12th.
After only 25 minutes he had to be carried off with another bad injury and was forced to take things easy for five weeks.

We all hope Kenny will shrug off these set-backs and get back to his scoring best as soon as possible.
