Former Dunfermline boss Jim Leishman has revealed fans and businessmen have pledged £100,000 to help keep the stricken club afloat.

The Pars entered interim administration last week due to a £134,000 tax bill owed to Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs.

Bryan Jackson of accountants PKF is in control of the club and it looks likely he will have enough money to steer Dunfermline through to the end of the season.

And Leishman has issued a rallying cry to supporters ahead of Saturday's home game against Hamilton.

"All the people have come together to work together and we have formed a strategy group, Pars United," he said.

"Although it's a major step forward, this Saturday is a major, major moment.

"We need everyone to turn up and support the team. We're trying to mobilise a community and get everyone behind us to save the club.

"If you have something you can cancel, cancel it. That also goes for all three home games between now and the end of the season."
