East Fife came from behind to beat promotion hopefuls Dunfermline Athletic and move off the foot of the table.

Shaun Byrne found Jordan Moore in the centre of the penalty area and the Pars striker fired his right-footed strike into the bottom-left corner.

But Ross Brown equalised with nine minutes remaining from Scott Durie's cut-back.

And former Pars striker Liam Buchanan handed the Fifers all three points with a brilliant lob over Ryan Scully.

The late turnaround gave East Fife their first away win of the season.

It meant that Dunfermline slip behind Ayr United into fourth place in League One as East Fife move above Brechin City and Airdrieonians.
