Stevie Crawford is delighted with his Dunfermline side’s 3-1 win over Morton on another day inspired by Kevin Nisbet.

The striker continued his hot run of form with another two goals against the Ton. Greg Kiltie was also on the scoresheet for the Pars as Reece Lyons’ strike was nothing but a consolation.

It lifts Dunfermline into third, fueled by Nisbet’s form. He has scored seven in his last three and now sits on 18 from 23 games in all competitions.

Crawford has hailed the man he thinks will gather interest now as well as the team’s overall performance against David Hopkin’s side.

“To get nine points out of three games, I’m delighted, credit to the boys,” he said. “I thought the first half we were excellent again today and we should have been more goals up.

“Credit to Morton, they came at us. The pleasing thing for us is we managed to see out that period where possibly earlier in the season we could have folded.

“If you ask his teammates, they have a belief that he has goals in him. That feeds throughout the team. Kevin now knows that he is scoring goals at this level and that is important for him as an individual as well.

“He has had a wee pat on the back and he is getting a wee bit of press attention but it is not affecting him.

“There will be games coming up where people will be looking out for him now. He is going to have to face different challenges.”
