Brechin City 1-1 Dunfermline Athletic

Brechin made it 16 matches unbeaten after coming from behind to draw with Dunfermline.

The hosts were stunned after just 34 seconds when Josh Falkingham fired Dunfermline into the lead.

Michael Moffat almost doubled their advantage but his header was beaten out by Graeme Smith, while Pars keeper Ryan Scully's fine save denied Robbie Barr.

But Scully could do nothing to prevent Paul McLean hitting the leveller 13 minutes into the second half.
