Pars skipper Austin McCann says the team’s first home win of the season was for their supporters.
Dunfermline defeated Aberdeen 3-0 at East End Park on Saturday to finally end their home hoodoo.
The result brought McCann’s side to within three points of Hibernian and applied the pressure to the Edinburgh side in a relegation battle that looking all but over two weeks ago.
McCann said: “The three points were the most important thing so we could put pressure on Hibs on the Sunday. We did that and Hibs failed to beat St Mirren so it brought us right back into it.
“It was for our fans as well though. They had been waiting for that all season and to win so convincingly was a good result.”
McCann is one of 14 players out of contract at the end of the season and he said that they are all fighting for their own futures.
The full back added: “You have to look after the team first. We are dealing with trying to stay up.
“Obviously it’s in the backs of our minds about contracts but if we take care of business for the club then hopefully the club will take care of the boys.”
