Forfar Ath 2-4 Dunfermline Ath

Faissal El Bakhtaoui scored twice as Dunfermline Athletic maintained their six-point lead at the top of Scottish League One by beating Forfar Athletic.

El Bakhtaoui struck to give the Pars the lead, but Iain Campbell levelled with a penalty after Shaun Rooney had fouled Danny Denholm.

Another El Bakhtaoui shot regained the lead for Dunfermline and the striker then set up Joe Cardle to score.

Michael Travis headed one back before Ryan Wallace fired the Pars' fourth.
