Dunfermline Athletic 3-0 Arbroath

Dunfermline claimed a comfortable victory over Scottish League One basement side Arbroath.

The Pars hit the front when Stephen Husband found the top-left corner of Sandy Wood's goal with a sweetly struck shot.

Ross Forbes doubled Dunfermline's lead on the hour mark with another fine strike.

And Forbes then turned provider for Josh Falkingham to slot home from six yards.
