Stephen Husband wants Dunfermline to be the first team to beat Rangers in the league

The Pars host the Light Blues hoping to become the first side to beat the high-flying Ibrox side in the league this season.

Husband insists the Fifers will approach the live TV encounter with confidence, despite losing 3-1 the last time the teams faced each other in Govan back in November.

On that occasion the scores were still level until the 71st minute when Lee McCulloch won Rangers a controversial penalty that also resulted in Dunfermline's on-loan Dundee United striker Jordan Moore being sent off.

But, with that defeat remaining the Pars' only setback in their last 11 matches, Husband hopes the five-point advantage they go into the match enjoying over third-placed Stranraer means they can go out to attack Rangers.

The 23-year-old former Hearts and Blackpool midfielder said: "With the gap we've got we've given ourselves a bit of room to play with. That's what the gaffer wanted, so we can go and have a go at Rangers.

"Rangers have not been beaten yet and that is an incentive for every team to be the first. Stranraer did fantastic to draw - Ally (McCoist) said that they deserved it - but nobody has beaten them in the league."
