All in all Dunfermline have enjoyed a good start to their Championship campaign. The Pars are currently in second place in the league table.

However, things have slightly came off the rails a little bit in their last few league games. Stevie Crawford’s side have not won their last two league games, indeed they gave taken only point from the last six available.

Taking one game at a time

That might be why Dunfermline’s Iain Wilson is refusing to look too far ahead this season. Indeed, he is taking heed of that old football adage of taking one game at a time.

“We can’t get carried away because we have had a solid start to the campaign” he said (The Courier).

“We have to take it one game at a time and see what happens. It is still early days and there are a lot of good teams in this division” Wilson continued.

Dunfermline underlined their credentials for the season by running St Johnstone very close in the midweek Betfred Cup quarter-final. Indeed, Wilson scored the goal that took the game to penalties, which the East End Park side lose 4-3.

Pushed Premiership side all the way

Wilson hopes that his team can take encouragement from how close they came to beating St Johnstone, and that they can take lessons learned from that game into their next league game.

“We played well against St Johnstone and one of our other better performances was against Hearts in the league. That is a good sign” he mused.

“We maybe need to control the game a bit better in the games against teams in the Championship when they are sitting off of us. We need to get better at that” Wilson concluded.
