Stevie Crawford’s Dunfermline side sit at the top of the Championship after making it three wins from three in the league.

The Fife side saw off Queen of the South 3-2 to continue their 100% winning record in all competitions this season. Speaking after the final whistle, Crawford said he was impressed with the performance and efforts of his players.

“Obviously I’m delighted with the win,” said Crawford. “I thought we finished the first half very well and it was probably our best spell in the game with possession.

“When we went 3-1 up, I thought Queen’s grew into the game and they had their best a spell towards the end. They were throwing everything at us and it was a bit edgy at 3-2 but we have shown enough to come away with three points.”

All three Pars goals stemmed from corners with winger Dom Thomas providing the deliveries for all three. The Dunfermline manager was impressed with the winger but said it’s all about the team: “The three goals come from a set play. Long may that continue because it’s something we work on.

“Dom takes pride in his delivery. The good thing was Paul Watson getting on the end of one as well. He showed a striker’s instinct and it was nice for him to get one as well now.

“I’ve said it all the time, it’s the Thomas and Murray combination in the first half but other boys are going in there and attacking and creating space, so it’s not just a case of it being the Dom Thomas and the Euan Murray show. It’s people doing their jobs properly that are creating space for others.”

Crawford said: “I think that we have got to be careful that it’s only three games into the season but having taken maximum points we need to make sure we go into every game and apply ourselves and the proper manner.

“It’s a nice feeling to be sitting up there but it’s definitely not a case of getting carried away. People never look back at the end of the season and see that wasn’t the best of games or that wasn’t the best performance, or you carried luck.

“You only get maybe five games where something like that goes your way, so you have got to grind out results. When we see off the game that is the bit that excites me the most at the minute. We are going to come up against it at some points in the season and as long as we apply ourselves, we can live with it.”
