Match Preview

Brown hopeful over Langfield deal Aberdeen manager Craig Brown is hopeful goalkeeper Jamie Langfield will put pen to paper on a new deal within the next 24 hours. The 32-year-old was offered a contract extension after making a return to top team action following his recovery from a brain seizure. Langfield - whose current deal is set to expire at the end of the season - has yet to commit to an extended stay at Pittodrie. Brown said: "Jamie Langfield has been given another 24 hours to make a decision. "He and [Aberdeen chief executive] Duncan Fraser are going over things now but I don't think it has anything to do with money or desire to play for Aberdeen Football Club, I think it is length of contract they are discussing which has held us up. "I think things look favourable. Hopefully by [Wednesday] he will have completed negotiations." Brown also wants to hold talks with Inverness winger Jonny Hayes as he continues to plan for the new campaign. The Dons boss has already discussed his interest in the player with Inverness manager Terry Butcher. Brown said: "I have spoken to Terry Butcher but I have not spoken to Jonny Hayes. "We will look to speak to him. Terry wants him to stay and we have indicated our desire to have him and I think it is up to Jonny. "I would obviously hope if he was coming to a Scottish team he would choose us. We would like him and there is no denying that." Meanwhile, Brown is expecting a tough challenge from Hibernian as the Edinburgh side continue their battle to retain their Clydesdale Bank Premier League status. But the Dons boss claimed Saturday's 3-0 defeat to bottom club Dunfermline is no reason to panic about his own team's form. He said: "We watched the Dunfermline game again and the tape clearly indicates it was an even game, if not a game in our favour. "But we have made three horrendous errors which cost us three goals. We weren't conceding like that before this game. "If the players weren't dejected after the game you would be worried. We are all feeling bad. "I do think we need to strengthen the team, no question about that, but I don't think we need to be ringing alarm bells because we have made horrendous, unprecedented errors." He added: "Hibs will be really and thoroughly committed so it is up to us to make sure we have the same mentality. "The seriousness of their situation will be emphasised to them so you can be sure it will be a fired up Hibs team. "Obviously we want a win. It is crucial from our pride point of view to get a victory to restore a little bit of confidence in the fans." Hibernian manager Pat Fenlon appears to be attempting to invoke a siege mentality by claiming many in Scottish football are enjoying seeing his side in danger of relegation. Hibs are three points clear of bottom club Dunfermline with three matches to go, including next Monday's clash with the Pars at Easter Road. A seven-point lead has been cut to three after Dunfermline claimed four points from their last two games and, on each occasion, Hibs suffered narrow defeats 24 hours later. "I think people are happy Hibs are in trouble," Fenlon said. "There's definitely a perception out there that a lot of people want to see Hibs in trouble for some reason, I don't know why." The fixture schedule has dictated Hibs have played after the Pars for the last four SPL matches, while Fenlon feels his players have been the subject of unwarranted criticism following 1-0 losses to Kilmarnock and at St Mirren in the last two games. Hibs and Dunfermline play on the same day in the SPL for the first time since March 24, with Fenlon urging his side to prove their detractors wrong by boosting their survival hopes. "We're on a level playing field now," added Fenlon, whose team travel to Inverness on the final day of the SPL campaign. "We've just got to win our own games, it's still in our own hands. We win our next two matches, we're safe. Simple as that. "I'm not nervous, I'm looking forward to them. "Our last two performances have been very, very good. I've been very, very pleased with them. We just didn't get a rub of the green. "The confidence is okay. It's just a matter of making sure they keep believing in what we're doing and eventually some of those chances will go in for us."
