Injury-ravaged Dunfermline deservedly held on to take a point against Dundee at Dens Park.
Jim Hamilton opened the scoring for the Fifers with 14 minutes gone when he side-footed home a Mark Burchill cross.
But Kevin McDonald levelled midway through the first half for the home team after his 25-yard strike was deflected into the net.
Dundee were awarded a late penalty when Paul Dixon was tripped in the area, but Derek Lyle was unable to convert.
