Alloa Athletic 0-1 Cowdenbeath

Kane Hemmings' second-half strike gave Cowdenbeath victory against Scottish Championship rivals Alloa Athletic at Recreation Park.

After a goal-less first half, Alloa's Kevin Cawley forced a save from Thomas Flynn on 55 minutes.

Hemmings pounced on Dean Brett's cross to edge Cowden into the lead.

Stephen Simmons' effort was fumbled by Flynn but the visitors' lead survived and Daryll Meggatt fired wide for the home side late in the match.
