Dunfermline Athletic remain without a win or a goal in Scottish League One following defeat by Forfar Athletic.

The Pars' Gozie Ugwu missed a good chance from close range inside 10 minutes.

But it was Forfar who took the lead when Dale Hilson found space in the box and sent a tidy finish past Ryan Scully.

And Darren Dods headed home James Dale's free-kick to double the hosts' advantage.
