Annan Athletic 2-0 Albion Rovers

Annan Athletic scored in either half to beat Albion Rovers and climb into second place in Scottish League Two.

Josh Todd headed home Scott Davidson's cross for his sixth goal of the season.

Eight minutes into the second half, Kenneth Mackay smashed a right-footed drive into the bottom corner.

Mark McGuigan summed up the visitors' afternoon as he headed straight at the goalkeeper when it had appeared easier to score, leaving his side to reflect on their first defeat in seven games.
