Dunfermline Athletic 2-2 Forfar Athletic

Forfar Athletic claimed a draw and a vital point in their survival fight at Dunfermline Athletic.

Michael Moffat scored two for the hosts, but missed twice from the spot late-on, blasting the first over before the retaken attempt was pushed on to the post by goalkeeper Darren Hill.

Gavin Swankie and Andy Ryan had twice put ninth-placed Forfar ahead.

Thomas O'Brien was sent off in stoppage time for violent conduct before Moffat failed to claim a treble and victory.
