Dunfermline Ath 1-3 Forfar Ath

Forfar Athletic will go into the final game of the season level on points with Scottish League One leaders Greenock Morton after beating Dunfermline.

Martyn Fotheringham blasted home from a free-kick to give Forfar the lead and Chris Templeman tucked away their second.

Dale Hilson scored from the penalty spot after Finn Graham's foul on Templeman.

Faissal El Bakhtaoui netted a consolation for the Pars.

The result temporarily moved Forfar top of the division but Morton are now at the summit on goal difference after beating Stranraer, who slip to third and trail by two points.

Forfar host Ayr United in next week's final round of fixtures while Morton visit Peterhead and Stranraer are at Brechin City.
