Dunfermline Athletic 3-2 Stenhousemuir

Dunfermline came from behind to beat Stenny in a thriller at East End Park.

The visitors took the lead through a Kevin McKinlay header then a Shaun Byrne strike levelled matters.

Darren Smith's right-footed effort put Stenny back in charge, but the Pars hit back through Ryan Wallace's spot-kick after he was fouled by Sean Dickson.

Allan Smith completed Dunfermline's comeback in stoppage time with a right-footed strike beyond goalkeeper Chris Smith to secure the League One points.
