Ross Millen's 90th-minute penalty gave Dunfermline Athletic victory over Brechin City.

After a goalless first half, Faissal El Bakhtaoui crossed for Lawrence Shankland to fire home the Pars' opener.

Robert Thomson's clinical finish for Brechin levelled the match.

Steven Jackson's rash challenge on Allan Smith gave Dunfermline a spot-kick and Millen converted for his first goal of the season.
