When Wighton was cut down by Johnson out on the left, Allan was able to deliver the ball into the box and McCANN rose above everyone to head in the 14th minute opener. 0-1

Jack Brydon brought down Wighton and referee Barry Cook immediately showed the FC Edinburgh defender a 27th minute red card. McCann struck the setpiece to the keeper’s right, who chose to dive the right way and held the effort. After some serious pressures, corners and saves, the second Pars goal duly arrived from a 41st minute Allan corner. His cross from the left dropped at Chalmers left foot and his shot was finished by McCANN. 0-2

With 18 minutes of the match remaining, Chalmers was able to thread a ball through to MOCHRIE who rolled the ball past Mutch to notch a debut goal. 0-3
