Join the Moff as he travels through time and space to visit Pars games from the past, in his PARDIS time travel machine.
As seen in the photo above, the PARDIS touched down at McDiarmid Park, Perth, in 2000 to see Dunfermline play St Johnstone in a Premier League match.
November 4, 2000 - Premier League - St Johnstone 0, Dunfermline 2
The previous week's 1-0 home win over Dundee had ended a run of 6 games without a win for Jimmy Calderwood's Dunfermline side. Having won promotion back to the top division the previous season, Calderwood's team had gathered 13 points from the opening 12 games. Four days before this game, they had lost to the other Saints, St Mirren, in the quarter finals of the League Cup.
St Johnstone went into the game having defeated Rangers in their last match. It was the Pars who started the game as the more dominant team, with David Moss seeing his header from 6 yards hitting the bar in the opening minutes. St Johnstone did not force Pars keeper Marco Ruitenbeek into making any saves throughout the first half, but Dunfermline were unable to turn their superiority into goals.
The second half began with Barry Nicholson hitting the bar with a shot. After 67 minutes, Moss seemed to have given Dunfermline the lead but his goal after he had turned in a shot from an Ian Ferguson pass was ruled out as being offside. Just one minute later, the Pars did go ahead when Jason Dair struck a shot that took a slight deflection and beat Alan Main in the Saints' goal. Nicholson then doubled Dunfermline's lead in the 85th minute, chipping the ball over Main from outside the penalty box. This was the first time that the Pars had scored more than one goal in a League game that season. It was also the team's third consecutive clean sheet in the League.
Pars team: Marco Ruitenbeek, Jason Dair, Justin Skinner, Andrius Skerla, Scott Thomson, David Moss, Barry Nicholson, Ian Ferguson, Stevie Crawford, Owen Coyle, Chris McGroarty.
