Dunfermline say they have yet to be served with a winding-up order despite Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs instigating proceedings.

The Irn-Bru First Division side, who last week established a working party to help them fend off liquidation, confirmed they owed £129,000 in VAT and PAYE.

A club statement added: "DAFC were in discussions with HMRC as late as Thursday afternoon to come to a solution re the repayment of these outstanding amounts.

"It was only after DAFC called HMRC on Friday afternoon they received confirmation that HMRC had applied for a winding-up order.

"DAFC have yet to be served with the winding-up order."Local rivals Raith Rovers vowed to help Dunfermline by donating some of the gate receipts from their Fife derby at Stark's Park on Saturday to Jim Leishman's 'steering group', set up to rescue the club after majority shareholder Gavin Masterton relinquished his board position.

Rovers will hand over admission money received from the Dunfermline support beyond the first 2,000 fans in the 3,250 capacity visiting stand.

A club statement read: "Dunfermline Athletic are, and hopefully always will be, our fiercest sporting rivals - but they are also our friends, and we would like to offer our friends a helping hand in their hour of need.

"Of course we really don't want our own support to be outnumbered... so this is a call to supporters of both clubs to get themselves, their friends and families along to the derby fixture which we sincerely hope will continue for many years to come."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
