Dunfermline manager couldn’t be happier with his side heading into this weekend’s match with Dundee.

Dundee are currently three points off Dunfermline. Crawford’s men could put distance between themselves between themselves and the Dark Blues with a win.

Crawford knows how difficult that will be, however, although he says his side couldn’t be heading into the tantalising clash in much better form.

“I was delighted with the result at the weekend.” Crawford beamed. “It puts us into the play-off places and we go into the Dundee game with a positive state of mind.

“Dundee is a competitive fixture at the best of times. I know having spoken to James McPake at the reserve game that they’d won three on the bounce then lost three on the bounce.

“They drew with Arbroath and it was a tight game with not a lot of chances. Dundee carry a threat and they’ll be looking to get a positive result heading into the Christmas period. It’ll be a tough ask to go up there and get three points but one we’re certainly capable of.

“Dundee are a good club, a big club, and it’s a game James will be well prepared for. We’ve no divine right to go up there and expect to win but we’ll give ourselves the best opportunity.”
