Hibs still in driving seat, says Jim Jefferies
Jim Jefferies insists Hibs remain in the driving seat in the race to avoid relegation from the SPL but he believes the Easter Road outfit will be feeling the pressure being exerted by his chasing Dunfermline side.
The Pars are now within three points of Pat Fenlon’s stuttering side and appear to be gaining momentum at the right time as they seek to give themselves something to aim for in Monday’s potentially-pivotal clash with Hibs in the capital.
Before then, they have tomorrow night’s trip to face Inverness, who themselves could still be relegated. And, with Hibs travelling to Pittodrie to take on Aberdeen, Jefferies is thrilled his team have given themselves an improved chance of survival and heaped the pressure on their Edinburgh rivals for the drop.
The Dunfermline manager said: “We’ve bettered our chances over the weekend because we won and they lost, but they’re still in the driving seat and they’re still the ones that can throw it away.
“They become massive games for both of us in midweek. Because of the weekend’s results, we could even draw at Inverness and still be a point closer, and then it comes down to the last two games.
“All the scenarios have changed and, although I know it’s all ifs and buts, Inverness could still be dragged into it as well.”
