Cowdenbeath 2-0 Stirling Albion

Scottish Football League

Cowdenbeath climbed to the top of the table with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Stirling at Central Park.

Goals from Jordan Morton and Marc McKenzie either side of half-time did the damage as the Miners extended their unbeaten run to five.

Player-manager Colin Cameron hit the crossbar on the half-hour mark before his side took the lead three minutes later.

Stirling keeper Sam Filler fouled Morton and he picked himself up to power the penalty into the bottom right-hand corner for his fourth goal of the season.

The home side doubled their lead two minutes after the restart when McKenzie fired home Greg Stewart's pass from the edge of the area.

And Stewart almost extended the lead to three on 65 minutes but his effort came back off the bar.
