Forfar Athletic 1-1 Cowdenbeath

Two goals in the first four minutes saw Cowdenbeath and Forfar share the points at Station Park.

Andy Ryan fired Forfar in front with a left-foot shot but the lead proved short-lived as Greig Spence ended his six-match goal drought.

Forfar looked the most threatening in the second half but Ryan struck a post and Gavin Swankie was twice denied by Cowdenbeath goalkeeper Grant Adam.

The draw keeps Cowdenbeath above Forfar in the table.
