Falkirk 5-0 Cowdenbeath

Rory Loy hit a hat-trick as Falkirk hammered Cowdenbeath and boosted their Championship title hopes.

Loy volleyed home from Mark Beck's flick and then made it two, before Blair Alston killed off the contest with a great strike.

Craig Sibbald latched on to Mark Millar's through ball to net the fourth early in the second half.

And Loy completed the scoring after more good work by Beck, with the Bairns now just four points off top spot.
