Here’s what the supporters had to say on social media:

@ThisMyStoryPod: “I’d be ashamed to be a Dunfermline, Raith or Dundee fan. We are pathetic, embarrassing we are running away with this league. Now dropped points or lost to every side in this league bar Ayr United. Every team bar Ayr. Shambles.”

@aitkengraeme: “Superb result. Well played Robbie and the team. A solid away result against such a great team. Very proud of you tonight!!”

@Statto1980: “Straight back down next season if this football continues. We have been absolutely rubbish for at least 2.5 seasons, and nothing looks like changing any time soon.”

@jambodave81: “Same p*** every week.Same setup,same subs,same p*** excuses. Simply not good enough. Time to play the youngsters. At least they’ll play for the jersey without stealing a wage.”

@DanielHibbert51: “God help us next season.. 100% not good enough yet again hearts , we should be beating teams like this! There’s no excuses.”

@cazlovesSTEPS: “Neilson started season spot on then they're just getting worse every week. Something is missing we can't beat a part time team should be wiping floor with them. But same old line ups, obviously there not performing so it's time to mix it up.”

@CraigFregmenton: “Ridiculous- we’re in a marginally better position than at the start of the day. If any other team had been able to put 3 or 4 wins together then we would have struggled.”

@clairo_13: “Every week I thank my lucky stars we’re in lockdown and don’t have to watch this turgid rubbish.”

@brianfdouglas: “Cannot get my head round the fact that the worst TEAM in this league are actually 16 points ahead. Preposterous.”

@Moonheid1: “I'd like a refund. I never paid anything, but feel I should get something back for having to watch that utter dross.”

@GreigWB: “Some of the abuse is horrendous. The team isn’t setting the world on fire, and I’d love to see some more convincing displays, but some of the relentless anger and insults doesn’t sit well with me.”
