History of the Dunfermline Athletic v Livingston fixture

Livingston face a trip to Dunfermline Athletic at East End Park on Saturday evening, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 12 out of 17 times.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in February 2003, with Dunfermline A. running out comfortable 2 - 0 winners in a Scottish F.A. Cup match.
