Dunfermline Athletic 7-1 Cowdenbeath

Dunfermline Athletic routed Fife neighbours Cowdenbeath to continue their goal rush in Scottish League One.

Faissal El Bakhtaoui scored twice inside the first eight minutes to set the tone for the game and Michael Moffat made it 3-0 after 12 minutes.

Joe Cardle made it four before Cowdenbeath's Craig Johnston was sent off after 58 minutes.

David Hopkirk, Ryan Wallace and Cardle completed the home scoring before the visitors' Pat Scullion fired a reply.

The Pars have now won 4-1, 5-1, 6-1 and now 7-1 in successive weeks.

That 5-1 win also came against Cowdenbeath, in the League Cup, when the Blue Brazil had goalkeeper Michael Andrews sent off.
