Pars go down

Published Add your comment

Dunfermline were relegated from the Clydesdale Bank Premier League after an early implosion helped Hibernian triumph 4-0 at Easter Road.

The Pars conceded three times in the opening 15 minutes as Matt Doherty exposed their defensive failings, firstly heading in after five minutes before crossing for Eoin Doyle to apply the second six minutes later.

Garry O'Connor converted on his 29th birthday for his 16th goal of the season after Austin McCann fouled Paul Hanlon, who volleyed in a fourth after 81 minutes, although replays suggested the strike should not have been allowed.
