Dunfermline Athletic 5-0 Stenhousemuir

Dunfermline Athletic extended their lead at the top of League One by hammering 10-man Stenhousemuir.

Two goals in four first-half minutes from Josh Falkingham and Michael Paton got the hosts off and running.

Faissal El Bakhtaoui scored his 24th of the season and substitute Ryan Wallace netted before Colin McCabe's dismissal.

The on-loan Celtic goalkeeper saw red for conceding a penalty and though Wallace's initial effort was saved, he tucked away the rebound.
