Football: Shields won't be fooled again.

Byline: By Gary Ralston

GREG SHIELDS once thought Dunfermline were too good to go down and paid the ultimate price.

The full-back reckons the Pars have the quality to pull clear of a relegation scrap this time,but bitter experience has taught him they need to start producing results - starting today against Motherwell.

Shields said: "We can't risk the same scenario as seven years ago. I felt our squad was too good to go down then but Iwas young and naive and formed my opinion on the fact we had finished sixth the season before.

"We had to beat Hearts on the last day to stand a chance of staying up but we lost 2-0.

"Relegation was horrible and it's something Scott Thomson, Andy Tod and I still remember and are determined won't happen again.

"Losing becomes a habit and it's vital we start winning again
