Jefferies despairs as Pars self-destruct

Manager Jim Jefferies lamented three moments of madness as Dunfermline were relegated from the Clydesdale Bank Premier League after an early implosion in the 4-0 loss to Hibernian at Easter Road.

The Pars had to win to take the duel to avoid the drop to the final day, but a point was enough for second-bottom Hibs. Defensive failings saw Matt Doherty, Eoin Doyle and Garry O'Connor, with a penalty, score in the opening 15 minutes before Paul Hanlon was awarded a late fourth despite replays showing the ball did not cross the line.

Jefferies said: "It was our last chance tonight to take it to the last game and we threw it all away in 15 minutes."
