Airdrieonians 3-2 Cowdenbeath

Two late goals saw Airdrie come from behind to beat struggling Cowdenbeath.

David Cox put the hosts aheadwhen he latched on to Caolan McAleer's ball and fired past Jamie Sneddon.

The Blue Brazil were level through Robbie Buchanan's penalty, and went ahead when Andy Murdoch swept home Mo Yaqub's ball from close range.

George Hunter then levelled with a fine solo effort from outside the box, before Hunter played in Liam Watt and he made no mistake.
