Dom Thomas says that Dunfermline will take on anybody at East End Park with no fear as they prepare to welcome Dundee United.

The Kilmarnock loanee played 90 minutes and scored in the Pars’ midweek clash with Inverness. A goal from Aaron Doran put Caley in front but the wideman scored a peach.

He collected the ball and sent a rocket into the top corner. It wasn’t enough to earn his side a share of the spoils as Tom Walsh struck with 13 minutes from time to give John Robertson’s men three points.

It puts them in seventh ahead of a tussle with Dundee United. Speaking after the Caley Thistle defeat, Thomas reckons that the Pars can be a match for anyone in their own backyard.


“Overall I think we did the right things and created chances, on another night we win 2 or 3-0,” said Thomas. “We can only look at the things we did well, our shape was good, we created the chances.

“I think that’s a positive. They are second in the league and we felt we were the better team. We can only take it from this game but if they are the second best team in the league, the benchmark has been broken by us.

“I think we can improve. Once the game is done I focus on the next one but it was a good hit. I’m just frustrated that it didn’t get us a point or three. I’m happy to score.

“Dundee United are flying at the top of the league but we fancy facing anybody, especially at home. Hopefully we can get the three points.”
