Cowdenbeath 2-1 Brechin City

Cowdenbeath's resurgence continued with a third straight win, this time over Scottish League One bottom side Brechin City.

Greig Spence gave the hosts an ideal start with a close-range finish.

It remained 1-0 until the 70th minute when Lewis Spence turned home Jamie Robson's cross for the equaliser.

However, Cowden would muster a later winner as Chris Kane came off the bench to head in Declan Hughes' delivery and leave Brechin four points from safety.
