Dunfermline 3-1 Raith Rovers

Dunfermline secured their first league home win of the season, defeating Raith Rovers at East End Park.

Ryan Wallace, Andrew Barrowman and Josh Falkingham were all on the scoresheet for the Pars as Grant Murray's side squandered a first-half penalty.

That spot-kick miss came on 15 minutes after Andy Dowie had brought down Grant Anderson. Brian Graham's shot from 12 yards was comfortably saved by Paul Gallacher.

And Raith were made to rue that miss as Wallace went up the other end to fire Dunfermline ahead and the hosts' lead was doubled when Falkingham headed in from Joe Cardle's cross.

Graham pulled a goal back for Raith after the restart to make up for his earlier miss but Dunfermline hit straight back, Barrowman finding the bottom corner of the net to restore his side's two-goal advantage.
