Kane Hemmings scored the only goal as strugglers Cowdenbeath recorded a win over Raith at Central Park.

The visitors dominated for large periods of the first half but they were unable to find a way past Cowden goalkeeper Thomas Flynn.

The hosts took the lead in the 70th minute when Hemmings headed his 19th goal of the season from close range.

Cowdenbeath pushed for a second in the closing stages of the match but it never came.
