Striker Roy O'Donovan hopes Hibernian's pedigree in one-off matches is evident in Monday's bottom-of-the-table Clydesdale Bank Premier League clash with Dunfermline.
William Hill Scottish Cup finalists Hibs will enter the fixture with a five-point lead over the Pars at the foot of the table and require just a point to preserve their SPL status and relegate the Pars.
"This is like a cup final on Monday, so it might suit us," O'Donovan said.
"We've got a point to prove. Hopefully we can prove we deserve to stay in the league and get a positive result.
"Dunfermline have to come to win the game so hopefully we can exploit that if they leave themselves open."
Hibs, who play Hearts in the first all-Edinburgh Scottish Cup final since 1896 on May 19, entered the midweek fixtures with a three-point lead over the Pars.
However, Pat Fenlon's men beat Aberdeen 2-1, while Dunfermline drew 0-0 at Inverness. Should the Pars win on Monday, the relegation duel would go to the final day of the season.
Even then, Hibs would have to lose at Inverness and Dunfermline win against Kilmarnock.
O'Donovan is determined Hibs, who have a superior goal difference, deliver at Easter Road and end the battle for survival.
He added: "We were delighted (with the win at Pittodrie). It would've been nicer had Inverness nicked a late goal and done the work for us.
"But fair play to Dunfermline, they didn't chuck it in. They had a great performance against Aberdeen at the weekend and they've put pressure on us.
"They're fighting for their livelihoods. They've done well of late and we're definitely not taking them lightly.
"We've got to step up to the plate like we did on Wednesday night again on Monday and get a result.
"It's going to be a tough game but we've got to be professional."
Hibs also have a chance to improve their home record of one SPL win this season, September's defeat of St Johnstone.
O'Donovan, who joined on loan from Coventry in January, added: "Our performances at home have been good to a point.
"The problem is we haven't really created enough chances at home and scored enough from open play."
O'Donovan, who has another year remaining on his Coventry contract, could prove a solution to the goalscoring problem and may get an opportunity on Monday with Leigh Griffiths suspended.
O'Donovan added: "I want to make sure I do as well as I can for the team while I'm here.
"I've loved it here. I'd love to score another couple of goals before the end of the season and hopefully we can do the business - stay up and look forward to a cup final then."
