Stenhousemuir 0-1 Dunfermline Athletic
Ryan Scully saved a late penalty to secure Dunfermline a win over Stenhousemuir and boost the Pars' play-off hopes.
Lewis Martin's handball handed 14-goal striker Colin McMenamin a chance from the spot but his effort straight down the middle was blocked by Scully.
Faissal El Bakhtaoui's earlier emphatic strike leaves the Pars three points off fourth-placed Brechin City.
Scully also denied Ciaran Summers, Paul McMullan and Kristopher Faulds.
