FT SCOTTISH Championship scores:
Ayr 0-2 St Mirren
Dundee Utd 1-1 Morton
Falkirk 2-2 Dumbarton
Queen of Sth
2-1 Raith Rovers
Go Scotland! Beat Wales 23-19!
And the heavens have opened - ye gods!
Hopefully not a sign of things to come in the game but the shooting practice has the ball flying over the net and into the fans! yikes!
The wind has picked up somewhat, it`s rather dull overhead but hopefully it doesn`t batter the hell oot of this stand and gets those home fans instead.
I`m fairly sure the south stand is the old coo shed.
No mucky comments please!
The Pars fans are filling up the south stand now - we got here a tad early and after a wee jaunt doon Easter Road it was still afore half four when we came into the stand.
I`ve no team sheet despite asking at the reception - only available to offishul folk :-(
So, I`ve copied and pasted the team line ups from Coos and will be looking to it on the netbook pages so forgive me if I don`t get the home team correct on occasions.
However I have the additional 1000 extra eyes beside and around me with the pars fans - let`s see if we can all get the right view LOL (chance will be a fine thing!)
Lewis Martin is dropped today and in comes Andy Geggan
Good afternoon from today`s SPFL Championship fixture between Hibernian FC and DAFC live from Easter road. Ko5.15pm.
