Crazy Gang's Cup Punch-Line


ALLAN MOORE believes Dunfermline's 'Crazy Gang' spirit can carry the unfashionable Fife club into the Cola Cup semi-finals for the second successive season tonight.

Hearts are the visitors to East End Park for a final tie which will test the nerves of both Jim Jefferies and Bert Paton in the search for progress.

A five-match unbeaten run has carried Paton's line to the top of the Premier League and Moore is in little doubt that self-belief, and a comparison with English upstarts Wimbledon, are major contributory factors.

'We are so confident at the moment and believe we can win any game,' said Moore.

'People are always saying we are the Wimbledon of Scotland and it got on our nerves last year because we felt we Dunferm-played some good football.

'But now we are using it to our advantage by creating a 'Crazy Gang' atmosphere. We must have the noisiest dressing room in Scotland before a game, with our music belting out as loud as possible.

'There's a lot of laughing and joking because we feel that a happy team has far more chance of winning.
