Sat, 13th Mar 2021
Undefeated in their six home games since losing to Morton on 12th December, Dunfermline were hosts to an Inverness side under the new temporary management of Neil McCann and Billy Dodds.
The first senior goal for 25 year Englishman David Carson nine minutes from time was enough to win the match for Inverness Caley Thistle over a lacklustre Dunfermline team.
A pass to pick out David CARSON on the right let the full back in to draw Euan Murray and stylishly tuck his shot away in off the far post. 0-1
