Dunfermline manager Allan Johnston’s team boast the best defensive and attacking record in the division – he is just frustrated they do not lead League One.
The Pars have notched an impressive 27 goals in eight games, and have only conceded eight.
But after being held to a frustrating draw at home to Airdrie at the weekend and having been beaten by Peterhead and Ayr United, the Fife outfit find themselves second in the table, one point adrift of the Honest Men.
Speaking ahead of today’s visit of Albion Rovers, Johnston is confident that it will not be long until the title favourites climb to the summit.
He said: “Despite last weekend’s draw, overall you can’t complain too much.
“The boys have got the best defensive record in the league, the best attacking record in the league and the only frustrating thing is that we’re not top of the league yet.
“We’ve got to go on a run of results and hopefully get there in the end.
“I’m sure it will be tight at the top but it’s up to us to put a run together and hopefully put a gap between ourselves and the rest of the teams, but it’s not easy to do that.
“You can see how difficult every game is.
“I think the boys have got a lot of plaudits for the way we’ve played although we’ve been beaten in a couple of games.
“Even in the games we’ve been beaten we’ve more than been in the game and at least merited a draw.”
