David Carson's late strike secured back-to-back wins for Inverness Caledonian Thistle and dented Dunfermline Athletic's Scottish Championship promotion hopes.

Carson converted from Scott Allardice's pass with nine minutes left as Neil McCann's side moved to within three points of the play-off places.

Dunfermline, who missed the chance to go second, went close through Euan Murray's header after Kyle MacDonald came close in the first half for the Fifers.
