Dunfermline goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams has taken positives from his team’s performance in the recent 1-0 loss to the Championship leaders Hearts.

The Tynecastle side won Saturday’s game 1-0, but arguably Dunfermline were unlucky not to take anything from the game, as they created some good chances on the day.

Now as the Pars prepare to return to action tonight against Raith in a vital league derby, Williams hopes that his team can take the same level of performance into the game against Raith Rovers.

“A lot of positives”

“There was a lot of positives from the game on Saturday. Our shape, our discipline within our shape. On the counter-attack we looked really strong. We created a number of chances, great chances as well, against the best team in the league” he said.

“If we are creating these chances against these teams, then we are doing something right. It’ll be a decent one against Raith, one we are really looking forward to obviously” Williams went on.

Hasn’t given up hope

Despite Dunfermline currently trailing Hearts in the Championship table by 12 points – with a game in hand – Williams hasn’t given up hope on his team making a charge for the title.

“There’s still a long, long way to go. We are going to go ahead of teams, we are going to go below teams. There’s still plenty of time left in this football season. I’m sure there will be a lot more twists and turns before the last game of the season.

Dunfermline go into the game against Raith in third place in the Championship. Raith are currently second, but only on goal difference, both teams are level on points.
