Dunfermline boss Allan Johnston felt his team could have won by even more goals than the couple they fired past Raith Rovers.
The Pars left Stark’s Park yesterday with a 2-0 win that saw them shoot up to sixth spot in the Championship.
Their goals came from Nicky Clark on 11 minutes and Lee Ashcroft on 78 but Johnston felt it could have been even more comfortable for the visitors.
“I thought we thoroughly deserved it,” said Johnston.
“In the first half I felt we edged it and scored a good goal from a corner.
“Then, in the second, we totally dominated and could probably have scored another three or four with a wee bit of quality.
“We had really good opportunities and from our goalie Sean Murdoch right through to Nicky Clark I thought the boys were excellent.
“Raith are a really good team so it was great to come here and put on such a good performance. That shows how far we have come since the start of the season.”
Rovers boss Gary Locke saw the match slightly differently, saying: “I didn’t think we started the game that well but we grew into it.
“There was a period before and after half-time when I felt we were the better side.
“We then had to go for it and Dunfermline caught us on the counter-attack, which is always going to happen when you try to get back into a game.
“Over the piece, they took their chances and we didn’t.”
