Inverness CT 2-2 Dunfermline Athletic

Nicky Clark scores
Nicky Clark's 21st goal of the season levelled the match in stoppage time

Dunfermline Athletic remain on course for a promotion play-off place in the Scottish Championship after scoring late to draw with Inverness CT.

Andy Ryan fired the Pars ahead after picking up a cutback from Lewis Martin and beating Mark Ridgers from 14 yards.

Joe Chalmers quickly equalised, executing a beautiful free-kick, and Nathan Austin's fine solo run and shot put them in front just after half-time.

But Nicky Clark stole in to level from a Joe Cardle free-kick in added time.

Dunfermline, who are in the final promotion play-off place, remain five points in front of Inverness and move to within two points of Dundee United. Inverness have two games to play while Dunfermline have one.
