Dunfermline A. face a trip to Queen of the South at Palmerston Park on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Pars will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was earlier this season, with Queen o.t.S. running out comfortable 2 - 0 winners in a Scottish Division One match.

Recent respective form guides

Queen of the South's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While The Doonhamers have scored 11, a worringly large 14 have been leaked at the other end.

Dunfermline A.'s away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. A generous 7 goals have been both scored and conceded in this period.

Queen o.t.S.'s 28 points from 19 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 4th position. Dunfermline A. are just outside the promotion places, in 2nd, having taken 39 points from 22 games.
