Brechin City 1-6 Dunfermline Athletic

Dunfermline opened their Scottish League One campaign by romping to victory against hosts Brechin City.

Faissal El Bakhtaoui struck the Pars' opener and Michael Moffat headed their second before Joe Cardle fired home.

El Bakhtaoui nodded another before the break and the scoring continued in the second half with a Ryan Wallace shot.

David Weatherston netted a consolation for Brechin but Josh Falkingham replied with a strike of his own for the visitors in the final minute.
