Dunfermline 4-0 Dumbarton

Dunfermline cruised past 10-man Dumbarton with an emphatic victory at East End Park.

The hosts took the lead just after the half-hour mark when Joshua Falkingham rose highest to head home Ryan Wallace's cross.

They doubled the advantage seven minutes later, Falkingham the provider this time as his cross was turned into his own net by Andrew Graham.

Things went from bad to worse for the visitors when goalkeeper Stephen Grindlay was dismissed after 69 minutes for a challenge on Joseph Cardle inside the penalty area.

Victory was all but ensured as Wallace stepped up to convert the spot-kick moments later.

Substitute Andrew Barrowman saw his header come back off a post, moments before Cardle added further gloss with a fine strike from distance in the final minute.
