Peterhead 1-1 Dunfermline Athletic

James Stevenson headed in a late leveller for Peterhead to prevent Dunfermline Athletic going top of Scottish League One.

Dunfermline appeared to be heading for a fourth consecutive away win after leading since the 19th minute.

Faissal El Bakhtaoui, on his 22nd birthday, scored his sixth goal in as many games win a header.

But, with two minutes left, Stevenson steered his header past Ryan Scully to halt his side's two-match losing run.

Rory McAllister and Bryan Gilfillan had both squandered chances for the home side before then.

Meanwhile, El Bakhtaoui was denied by a save from goalkeeper Graeme Smith shortly before the break, while visiting midfielder Ross Forbes curled an effort over from the edge of the area.
