Stenhousemuir 4-2 Cowdenbeath

Stenhousemuir scored twice in each half as they beat 10-man Cowdenbeath.

Colin McMenamin and Liam Henderson put Brown Ferguson's side in the lead before Allan Smith netted a third.

Aldin El-Zubaidi pulled one back, but Cook restored the three-goal advantage with a low strike.

Cowden soon added a second when Greig Spence rounded the goalkeeper, and Colin Nish's men were reduced to 10 men when John Armstrong was dismissed for violent conduct.
