Dunfermline star Ryan Dow has hailed the Pars’ fast start to the campaign which has had them register four consecutive victories.

Stevie Crawford’s men returned to action a couple of weeks ago with a 1-0 win over Dumbarton in the League Cup. They have since followed that up with 2-0, 3-0 and 3-1 victories over Falkirk, Kilmarnock and Inverness.

The latter came on the first day of Championship competition, Dow scoring as Dunfermline came from a goal down to claim three points.

With only 27 Championship matches to play this term, the attacker has explained why this start will be key to the Pars: “It is always massive every year to get that first win and get the monkey off your back but especially this season when the first round of fixtures have been cut out.

“To get off to a flyer and continue that in the next couple of games is massive. We have signed a lot of good players, we had a good team last year but I think we got a wee bit inconsistent at times.

“We have lost a few good players and obviously the main one in Nizzy (Kevin Nisbet) but we have brought a lot of good ones in and we have different options that we maybe didn’t have as much last season.

“It is exciting times and hopefully the fans will be thinking that as well. We are an exciting team to watch and going forward. We are creating a lot of chances every game and we have managed to take three on Saturday to win the game.

“Teams will come and maybe not sit in as much or if we get the goal to go ahead the fans are on your side and we can push back teams. It could be the same when we go away to others teams.

“If we go a goal down then the fans are right on top. It evens itself out but everyone wants fans back. It would have been brilliant to have had them, we need to hope that it will be soon.”
