Rhys McCabe sealed the victory for Dunfermline

Dunfermline ended their home campaign on a high with a 3-1 win over play-off bound Morton.

Nicky Clark gave the hosts a third-minute lead but Lawrence Shankland levelled before the break.

Michael Moffat restored the Pars' advantage six minutes after the break with a low shot.

And they wrapped up victory with five minutes remaining thanks to Rhys McCabe, whose 25-yard dig took a deflection on its way in.
