A double from Aidan Keena (left) was not enough for Dunfermline

Inverness Caledonian Thistle came from behind twice to draw at home to Dunfermline Athletic and move up to fourth in the Scottish Championship.

Aidan Keena fired the visitors in front after being played in by Myles Hippolyte, but Liam Polworth released Riccardo Calder for a neat finish.

Keena, who had been a constant threat, crashed a superb long-range effort into the top corner to restore the lead.

But Jordan White swept in a cross from Tom Walsh to level before the break.

Dunfermline went close to restoring their lead with 13 minutes left when a free-kick from Aidan Connolly crashed against the crossbar.

White almost grabbed his second goal of the night late on but headed over at the back post from a corner. celebrates scoring
