Dunfermline Athletic 3-2 Stranraer

Lawrence Shankland scored the winning goal on his debut as 10-man Dunfermline came from behind to beat fellow play-off hopefuls Stranraer.

The visitors took the lead when Steven Bell headed past Ryan Scully.

Ryan Thomson nodded Dunfermline level before Frank McKeown put the Blues back in front after the break.

Shaun Byrne found the top corner to equalise for the Pars, then Shankland secured the win before midfielder Faissal El Bakhtaoui saw red.
