Andy Geggan scored twice as Dunfermline Athletic got back on the winning trail by easing to victory away to Stenhousemuir.

Faissal El Bakhtaoui hit his 20th goal of the season after Michael Moffat put the ball in from the flank for a deserved half-time lead.

Geggan headed the second after Joe Cardle floated in a corner.

His sixth of the season followed 12 minutes from the end, tucking in after a pass from El Bakhtaoui.

It meant the Pars ended a run of four games without a victory in all competitions and extended their lead at the top of Scottish League One to eight points.
