Falkirk 4-0 Cowdenbeath

Mark Millar's brace helped Falkirk overcome second-bottom Cowdenbeath in the Scottish Championship.

The on-loan Dundee United midfielder slid in to open the scoring early in the second half and Rory Loy fired the Bairns' second.

Millar netted again with an emphatic finish from inside the box moments later.

And Scott Shepherd completed the scoring late on, hammering a shot into the net via the crossbar.
