This time it`s a departure for Longridge - wahey I got it right - poor lad - and on comes De-Vita.

Ash deals with a bouncing ball then impeded and it heads back to Murdoch to deal with.

Free kick Dunfermline after a thoughtless challenge from Penrice on Aird.
We think perhaps it`s Longridge who has gone off - after having a bleedin chappit face in the first half. I`ll let you know though.
Livvy fans lapping up the October sunshine - pity oor keeper is also facing into it but he could probably do with a wee tan, oor Sean.
HT Sub for Livvy on is Declan Gallagher - not heard who went off - let`s hope they`ve no` got 12 men....
Kick off and the Pars are flying.
Just told John Potter that Aird`s goal was a Mark Smith moment! He agreed wholeheartedly!
