Cowdenbeath 2-1 Albion Rovers

Scottish Football League

A double by Kal Naismith was enough to give Cowdenbeath victory over Albion Rovers in the Second Division.

The forward, who is on loan from Rangers, broke the deadlock with a left-foot strike and added another from the penalty spot.

Naismith was fouled in the box by Christopher Boyle and converted eight minutes before the break.

Scott Chaplain pulled one back for Rovers but was then sent off for violent conduct.
