Cowdenbeath 2-2 Alloa Athletic

Striker Greg Stewart nabbed a double as struggling Cowdenbeath drew with Alloa at Central Park.

Graeme Holmes fired the visitors into a seventh-minute lead but Stewart restored parity before the break, finding the bottom corner with ease.

Alloa nudged back in front when Ryan McCord latched onto Andrew Kirk's pass to rifle the ball home.

Sammy Stewart almost netted the equaliser before his namesake Greg scored his and his side's second.
