Mole ready to find the way to goal at Dunfermline

Ed Hodge
HEARTS forward Jamie Mole could make his debut for Dunfermline in today's Scottish Cup fourth-round tie against Clyde after joining the First Division club on loan until the end of the season.
Tynecastle manager Csaba Laszlo has granted the 20-year-old the chance to kick-start his career at East End Park despite his own lack of striking options in Gorgie.

Mole started the season strongly and scored his only goal of the campaign in a 2- 1 home win over St Mirren on 23 August .

But since Christian Nade's return to fitness, the young Geordie has been a bit-part player with the majority of his 15 appearances this term coming from the bench.

Mole, who has had previous loan spells at Livingston and Queen of the South, has not been cup-tied by Hearts and can face Clyde in the battle of the league rivals in Fife.

McIntyre hopes Mole can now put pressure on first-choice strike duo Andy Kirk and Graham Bayne to aid their cup hopes and help close the five-point gap to league leaders St Johnstone.

He said: "We've signed Jamie on loan until the end of the season. I've been working on it a while and it's happened. We need competition for places and this is another step in that direction.

"I've brought Rory Loy in from Rangers to complement the two main strikers we have and Jamie is now another one.

I'm hoping Jamie can now score goals. Hopefully he can apply pressure on the front two and we can find the right combination. He is in the squad."

On the Clyde test, he added: "They will be up for it having come here and scored four goals last time in a 4-4 draw, but we know what to expect this time."

Mole said: "While it was always my intention to demonstrate my ability at Hearts, I believe that the experience of more regular first-team football will be beneficial for me.

"I have watched other players such as Jamie MacDonald and Calum Elliot benefit from loan spells and believe it can help my career development at Hearts.

"I'm determined to be successful with Hearts, but for the rest of this season I will be concentrating on Dunfermline's push for the SPL."

Clyde manager John Brown, who picked up the First Division Manager of the Month award at Hampden in midweek, is determined that his side win through to the next round to generate money from a possible tie against an SPL side.

He said: "The credit crunch started at Clyde about six months before all the other teams, so it has been hard. It would be a great boost to the club if we got through this round, but we know it will not be easy."
