Stirling Albion 0-2 Cowdenbeath

Cowdenbeath are one win away from promotion from the Scottish Second Division after a victory over struggling Stirling Albion.

Cowden took an early lead through Lewis Coult, who neatly finished. Marc McKenzie's sixth-minute cross.

Stirling missed a glorious chance to level when Scott Davidson was fouled in the area by John Armstrong and Davidson's spot-kick was well saved by Thomas Flynn down to his left.

The visitors wrapped up the three points in the 89th minute as top scorer Marc McKenzie clinically fired past Stirling goalkeeper Callum Reidford for his 15th goal of the campaign.
