Match Report


Source unknown.

Ross County overcame Dunfermline Athletic to go top of the Championship.

County's Josh Mullin raced on to a Declan McManus pass and lashed a 22-yard shot home before Louis Longridge levelled for the Pars.

Michael Gardyne gave the visitors the lead again before half-time, running at the home defence and netting from the 18-yard line.

And Keith Watson hooked in from Ross Draper's head-flick at a corner to seal the visitors' win in the second half.

Dunfermline had plenty of possession and Aidan Connolly swept a free-kick just wide of goal with six minutes left, and Andy Ryan's low shot was held well by Scott Fox.

But County always had pace and were dangerous on the break as they held firm to take the points.
