Forfar Athletic 4-0 Dunfermline Athletic

Second-place Dunfermline were humbled by Scottish League One rivals Forfar Athletic at Station Park.

Paul McManus latched on to a Christopher Templeman through ball to coolly convert the opener.

Stuart Malcolm headed home Iain Campbell's free-kick before Robert Thomson nodded wide for the Pars.

Gavin Malin rifled in Forfar's third after the break and Dale Hilson completed the rout late on when he capitalised on a loose ball.
