Michael Moffat reckons son is Dunfermline’s good Luka charm



Michael Moffat reckons his son is turning into Dunfermline’s good luck charm after the baby boy took in Saturday’s potentially-pivotal victory over title rivals Ayr United.

Moffat helped send the Pars on their way to their second win at Somerset Park in the space of just a fortnight when he headed in the first-half opener – his first against his old club.

After Gerry McLauchlan’s quick-fire equaliser for the Honest Men, substitute David Hopkirk – a second-half replacement for Moffat – then earned the Fifers a 2-1 triumph and a three-point lead at the top of League One.

And Moffat believes Luka, who has just turned one, may have to start attending all Dunfermline’s matches after never witnessing a defeat.

The 30-year-old said: “The fans were all going wild but I actually missed that celebration at the end because I had my wee boy at the game with my mum.

“I went up to see him because he has been a wee good luck charm – we have not lost when he has been at a match.

“I think I need to bring him every week!

“The result is a massive confidence boost for us. We have gone to Ayr and won twice in the space of two weeks.”

Moffat told www.dafc.co.uk: “Ayr were at the top of the league but that is us there now and three points clear. They have a game in hand but we are on a great run at the moment and just need to keep it going.”
