Hibernian loanee Fraser Murray has expressed how much he is enjoying his time at Championship title contenders Dunfermline.

The 21-year-old midfielder moved to East End Park on a season long loan deal in September, and recently scored his first league goal for the Pars, and it was an important one too.

Scored a vital goal

With Stevie Crawford’s side 2-0 down to Raith Rovers, Murray came on as a second-half substitute and scored to give the team a lifeline. The game ended up 2-2, with Dunfermline picking up a valuable point, which leaves them a point behind Hearts at the top of the Championship table.

Murray was keen to point out how much he is enjoying his time at Dunfermline not long after he scored that vital goal.

 

“We’re doing well”

“Since I came in the door here I’ve loved every minute of it. All the boys made me feel welcome from the first minute. Great players here as well, so, enjoying every minute at the minute. We’re doing well, so hopefully we can continue the unbeaten run and take each game as it comes, and hopefully stay at the top of the end of the table” he said.

Murray then revealed what Stevie Crawford told him just before he came on as a substitute and helped to turn the game around.

“That’s one of my main aims, going on as an attacking player, try and provide, and score. He just said to me go out and express yourself, do what I do pretty much. I’m pleased to help the team out, I thought the boys were brilliant in the second-half.”
