Cowdenbeath 3-0 Brechin City

Cowdenbeath made it four games unbeaten with a convincing victory over bottom club Brechin.

Dean Brett gave the home side the lead with a 10th-minute penalty after Brechin defender Ross Perry handled in the area.

Aldin El-Zubaidi doubled the lead when he placed a clever finish beyond goalkeeper Graeme Smith, before Greig Spence secured the points late on.

Cowdenbeath are now just a point off sixth-placed Forfar.
