TONIGHT will represent a home away from home for skipper Euan Murray and he wants his Dunfermline team to impress at Rugby Park.

The 26-year-old, who scored both goals in Friday's win over Falkirk, will lead his side out at Kilmarnock in the third of their Betfred Cup Group E matches tonight after the Ayrshire side confirmed they would play.

Murray, appointed captain in the summer, lives in the town and is hoping he can make the short hop home with another positive result to show for it.

Following the victory over the Bairns, he said: "I stay just two minutes from Rugby Park, it’s probably the most local game I can get!

"But, listen, they’re a good team and we know it will be a very tough task against them.

"If we can defend as well as we did at times on Friday night and going the other way we’ve got some great players going forward, then we can go there and try to give a right good account of ourselves.

"Obviously we’re really pleased to come away with three points (on Friday) and the most important thing for me was a clean sheet again. It’s obviously nice to chip in with a couple of goals but my bread and butter is clean sheets and that’s what makes me happy.

"We made a slight adjustment at half-time. We dropped one of the strikers in, because they had three in the middle and they were maybe outnumbering us a wee bit and we felt like we couldn’t get out. I felt when we did that we took control of the game. When your chances come and you take them, it’s hard to come back from that."

Dom Thomas, signed from Killie in the summer, assisted both of Murray's goals and the defender was full of praise for his team-mate.

"The wee man has been a great addition to the squad," he continued.

"I think he’s added a lot to us and you saw that last season. He’s somebody who excites people. I was going to say he gets people off their seats - but they’re not in the ground.

"He’s certainly going to excite the fans and that’s a big plus for us. For me, and for the strikers, him getting to the bye-line and putting crosses in is something we hope to see throughout the season."
