New Dunfermline manager Jim Jefferies insists belief is crucial to their hopes of retaining their Clydesdale Bank Premier League status this season.
The Pars have spent most of the season languishing at the wrong end of the table and Jefferies believes changing the mindset of the players he has inherited is his first task ahead of Saturday's clash with St Mirren.
He said: "That's one of the reasons I've been given the job, the experience I've got in dealing with players. It's about making them believe that they can stay up. Talking to them, they seem a decent bunch."
