Pars leave it late
Ross Millen's 90th-minute penalty gave Dunfermline a 2-1 win over Brechin.
In a quiet first half, Brechin's Steven Jackson forced a fine save from Ryan Scully after 43 minutes and in first-half injury time, the goalkeeper kept out a Gerard McLauchlan header.
They were made to pay three minutes into the second half as Faissal El Bakhtaoui crossed for Lawrence Shankland to fire home from close range.
But Brechin hit back on the hour mark through Robert Thomson's clinical finish.
El Bakhtaoui forced Graeme Smith into a smart save and just when it looked like ending all square, Jackson's rash challenge on Allan Smith gave Dunfermline a penalty.
And Millen lashed in his first of the season to cement the win.
