'Lucky' win for Dunfermline
Monday 18 August 2003
The Dunfermline manager, Jimmy Calderwood, admitted his side were fortunate to come away from Dens Park yesterday with a 2-0 victory over Dundee.
Dunfermline had to rely on a Lee Wilkie own goal and a late strike from Stevie Crawford to win the match, and Calderwood said: "Dundee had most of the possession and played really well so we have to be delighted to take the points and I suppose we'd settle for that every week."
The win moved Dunfermline level on points with Celtic, who thrashed Dundee United 5-0 on Saturday. even though their manager, Martin O'Neill, rested several players after their midweek European endeavours. The reserves proved their worth with Shaun Maloney, Didier Agathe, Alan Thomson, Jackie McNamara and Henrik Larsson scoring the goals.
Rangers head the table after a 3-2 win at Aberdeen, who scored first through David Zdrilic. Goals from Ronald de Boer, Mikel Arteta and Michael Mols put Rangers in control before Eric Deloumeaux netted a late consolation goal.
