Dom Thomas played a vital role in Dunfermline’s 3-2 win over Queen of the South at the weekend.
The Pars have yet to be defeated in any competition this season and Stevie Crawford’s squad now sit top of the Championship table after three league wins from three games. Thomas insists they won’t get carried away.
Speaking after the game, the former Kilmarnock and Motherwell winger said: “It’s obviously great to chip in with assists for the team but the main thing is we got three points and climbed to the top of the table.
“We are obviously winning games which is the main thing. We’re playing good football now. But I honestly think we could play better and put on better performances but again we’ve taken maximum points from the first three games and we look forward to Ayr United on Saturday.”
It was wet and wild at East End Park as the elements battered the stadium, making the game much more difficult to play according to Thomas: ”Playing in Scotland, it’s not always going to be sunshine and rainbows, so you’ve just got to play the conditions as well and I thought we did that.
“We obviously got ourselves in front in the game and I thought the first half was very comfortable and we played good football. To be fair to Queen’s they came out and had a go and caused us a bit of a problem. Again we were strong and we took what they threw at us.”
Thomas was the provider for two of the three Pars goals. From the corner flag his delivery was on the money every time with Paul Watson and captain Euan Murray planting headers into the net.
It’s something Thomas says the Pars have been working on in training: “We do a lot of work on the training ground on it because it’s a key point to winning games and we do work on it with the gaffer and the coaches.
“We’ve got two good threats from corners and set pieces and I think now they’re starting to put two on us it leaves Paul [Watson] free and I was glad to see him get on the end of it and put it in the back of the net.”
