Tom Taiwo scored twice as Falkirk survived a Dunfermline comeback and a late dismissal in the Petrofac Cup.
Former Chelsea trainee Taiwo slotted home from eight yards on 55 minutes and added a second on the hour with a delightful chip.
Andy Geggan pulled one back in the 68th minute from a Ross Millen set-piece.
Falkirk went down to 10 men when substitute Botti Bia Bi, who had set up both goals, was sent off for serious foul play, but the Bairns held on.
A goalless first half, included a fine save by Pars keeper Ryan Scully to deny Rory Loy, while home striker Michael Moffatt was guilty of missing from close range.
