Dunfermline Ath 0-1 Brechin City

Alan Trouten's second-half header gave Brechin City victory against Dunfermline Athletic at East End Park.

Gerard McLauchlan tested Pars goalkeeper Ryan Scully with a header from close range in the first half.

But Trouten did manage to beat Scully when he connected with Robert Thomson's cross.

The Pars could not recover and they now trail fourth-place Brechin by six points in Scottish League One, with City now four behind leaders Stranraer.
