Dunfermline Athletic 1-2 East Fife

A late goal from Nathan Austin gave East Fife victory over Dunfermline and boosted their survival hopes in Scottish League One.

The Pars took the lead when Lawrence Shankland finished from six yards out.

But the Fifers won a penalty following Alex Whittle's challenge on Liam Buchanan. Buchanan took the spot-kick and converted to level the scores.

And Austin's low strike settled the match and kept East Fife within three points of eighth-place Airdrieonians.
