League Cup: DUNFERMLINE 2 ST MIRREN 0: 21/08/97

Hardly had Sammy the Tammy time to find a seat but Hamish FRENCH had put the Pars ahead. Stewart Petrie crossed to find Andy Smith on the edge of the box and the Pars Ravinelli rattled in a powerful shot from 20 yards. Dunfermline always looked a League above the Buddies but it wasn’t until the second half that they displayed total supremacy.

Dunfermline don’t wait for the half time hospitality to be drain these days. Andy Smith single handedly got the better of the Saints defence and put away number two with 47 minutes on the clock.

Harry Curran declined his usual option of two reasonably easy second half chances and the Pars easily qualified to be in Friday night’s draw for the quarter finals.

DUNFERMLINE: Ian Westwater, Greg Shields, Colin Miller, Andy Tod, Ivo Den Bieman, Harry Curran, Allan Moore, David Bingham, Andy Smith, Hamish French, Stewart Petrie.
Subs not used: Lemajic, Fraser, Young.
