Joe Cardle: Completed the scoring for Dunfermline
Dunfermline remain locked at the top of the table with Partick Thistle after a 4-0 demolition of 10-man Dumbarton at East End Park.
Joshua Falkingham set Jim Jefferies' side on the victory trail when heading home Ryan Wallace's pinpoint cross on the half-hour mark.
And the goalscorer had a hand in Pars' second just seven minutes later when his cross was turned into his own net by Sons defender Andrew Graham.
And there was no way back for the visitors when goalkeeper Stephen Grindlay was shown a red card for a challenge on Joe Cardle just inside the box.
Wallace ensured the points would remain in Fife when making it 3-0 from the resulting spot-kick and Cardle completed the scoring with a shot from outside the box just seconds from the end.
Thistle remain top of the table on goal difference after second-half goals from Aaron Sinclair and Stuart Bannigan earned them a 2-0 home victory over Livingston.
