Have you tried using -5px?  I am not sure if that would work or not, I do not know much about HTML positioning.  I am going to college for Web Design, but I haven't started any of my design classes yet.
-5px would just seem like a logical choice since it would bring the image from the bottom rather than the top.  If that might not work, could you trying using different numbers like 40px from the top until you have it at the right position from the bottom? Let me know if I helped.

I am 90 percent sure -5px would work for you.  I was reading this at a website:
With the calc() notation from the Values and Units module [CSS3VAL], background positions can also be relative to other corners than the top left. E.g., the following puts the background image 10px from the bottom and 3em from the right:

background-position: calc(100% - 3em) calc(100% - 10px)
