Dunfermline manager Jim Jefferies refused to concede the relegation fight after his team slipped five points behind Hibs with two games left.
The SPL’s bottom club stretched their unbeaten run to three games with a 0-0 draw at Inverness but Hibs’ win at Aberdeen saw the Pars slip further behind with a worse goal difference. However, Dunfermline can take it to the final day if they win at Easter Road on Monday and Jefferies will take his side to Leith in defiant mood.
“With Hibs winning we had to keep it alive,” he said. “We know what we have to do, we have to go to Easter Road and get a victory and if we do we take it to the last game, they have got to come [to Inverness] and we have a home game [against Kilmarnock]. Both tough matches.”
