A penalty kick converted by Steven Lawless ten minutes from time earned the Pars a vital point and it could have been more if they had been given decisions in the second half.

In the first half Dunfermline were pressed into doing a fair bit of defending without Fon Williams being called into any serious action but then in 39 minutes Caley Thistle found their way through. Reece McAlear broke into the right side of the Pars box and his cross picked out SUTHERLAND on the far side who drilled the ball home. 0-1

With time running out Dunfermline had pushed up in numbers and they were awarded a penalty after Pybus ran around the back of Edwards and then tried a cross in from the left that David Carson stopped with his hand. Steven LAWLESS stepped up to convert the 80th minute penalty with a left footed shot into the bottom left. The first goal for the Pars from the spot that season made it 1-1.
