Chairman urges Hibernian supporters to keep the faith

Hibernian chairman Rod Petrie is asking the fans to back the club and boost their hopes of avoiding relegation. The Easter Road side head into the final six games with a six-point advantage over bottom club Dunfermline in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.

In an open message to supporters on the club's official website, he said: "Your team needs you - it's as simple as that.

"If we do not rally to the cause no-one else will. Supporters will help determine how good an end to the season we have and the shape of the team for next season.

"We had a catastrophic 2011 to add to the problems in 2010. We made mistakes, I made mistakes. I am sorry. We have paid for these mistakes. That was then, this is 2012.

"We face the business end of the season with a stronger management team and a stronger playing squad than we had on the opening day."
