Albion Rovers 1-0 Peterhead

Albion Rovers left it late with John Gemmell scoring the only goal as they defeated Peterhead in Coatbridge.

Alistair Love had a header cleared off the line for Rovers and the same player forced a superb save from Graeme Smith.

There was little further sign of a breakthrough until a slack back-pass by the visitors allowed Gemmell in to round Smith and score.

Kevin Dzierzawski had a late chance to draw the sides level, but goalkeeper Ross Stewart saved superbly.
