The administrator running Dunfermline has pleaded with supporters to continue backing the financially troubled club as the Pars battle for their Irn-Bru First Division future.
The Fife outfit – penalised 15 points by the Scottish Football League after calling in administrators – dropped into the play-off place with Saturday’s 2-1 defeat by Airdrie.
They now face Forfar in a two-legged semi-final, with the first leg on Saturday at East End Park.
Bryan Jackson, a partner with accountants BDO, is now running the club after it was placed into administration to protect itself from a winding-up order launched by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs over an outstanding £134,000 tax bill.
Dunfermline supporters have raised almost £50,000 to help their bid for survival and Jackson appealed to them to make “one final push” by turning out for Saturday’s first-leg encounter with the Loons.
Jackson said: “One final push is needed over the next month to keep this historic club going and, given the support the club has received over the last six weeks, I believe that the fans will come out in their thousands to boost the crowds this weekend and in the rest of the play-offs.”
