Dumbarton 0 – 2 Dunfermline: McCabe volleys Pars to safety

One moment of quality in a game ruined by gale force winds was enough to give Dunfermline all three-points to leave them looking home and hosed in their bid for Championship consolidation whilst sucking Dumbarton right back into what now looks like a three-way fight to avoid the play-offs.

Dunfermline Athletic 1 - 0 Raith Rovers: Pars’ vital victory

Ahead of a fraught Fife derby, Raith Rovers manager John Hughes had urged his players to have “ice in their veins”. Instead, it was a Dunfermline player who displayed laudable composure as Kallum Higginbotham stepped up to ‘Panenka’ the Pars to victory.

Darren McGregor promises plenty of Hibs goals to come

Hibernian are a team who have been tipped for the Championship title from the moment last season finished. With a nine-point lead and only five games of the league season remaining, few would bet against them doing just that, but they are dragging it out.

Neil Lennon lightens up as Hibs eke towards Championship success

In an attempt to wind up the Dunfermline fans who had, he said, been giving him pelters all day, Hibernian boss Neil Lennon stood in front of them after the final whistle and raised aloft an imaginary trophy. “I was just laughing at them,” he said. In a spell when he has had little to smile about, it satisfied the mischief inside him, but he is unlikely to be completely gratified until he is able to get his hands on the Championship silverware for real.

St Mirren 0 - 0 Dunfermline: Saints in need of a miracle

If this was “Last Chance Saloon” for St Mirren then the team who less than four years ago were enjoying Hampden glory are down to the dregs at the bottom of the glass as it will now take an even bigger miracle than their League Cup win, and far better performances than this one, to completely stave off relegation.

Hibs’ Ofir Marciano shines as Dunfermline pack a punch

“Sometimes you need your goalkeeper.” Those were the words of Hibernian manager Neil Lennon after his side struggled to a 2-2 draw with Dunfermline in front of the BBC Alba cameras. A match which they surely would have lost, and perhaps lost heavily, were it not for the heroics of their aforementioned stopper, Ofir Marciano.
