Kyle MacDonald thinks that it is only a good thing for him that he made an earlier than expected debut for Dunfermline.

The 21-year-old joined the Pars from Airdrieonians in the January transfer window. He was meant to spend the rest of the season with the League One club on loan. However, with League One and League Two still suspended, the player has remained with Dunfermline. He recently made his debut as a first-half sub in the 2-1 win over Alloa.

Pleased to make early debut

MacDonald believes that getting into the side so early in his time at the club can only be a good thing going forward.

“When I first signed I knew the league had been cancelled. So, I’m at Dunfermline the now, so I might as well try and fight and get myself in the team. The earlier I get myself in the team the better” he said.


“Get myself in the team now”

“Hopefully I can continue doing that. I don’t know what’s going to happen with League One. But I’m going to be at Dunfermline for the next two years. So I may as well try and get myself in the team now, rather than later” MacDonald continued.

MacDonald took some confidence from the fact that Pars manager turned to him to replace Aaron Comrie when he was injured against Alloa.

“It showed a bit of confidence. He’s happy with the way I’m training, and he thinks I’m good enough to ply in that team. So, it’s a good bit of confidence for me. I want to show the coaches here, the players here and the fans here that I’m a good player” he concluded.
