Albion Rovers 1-5 Alloa Athletic

Alloa Athletic strengthened their grip on second place in Division Two with an emphatic victory against bottom club Albion Rovers.

Martin Grehan's early tap-in and Calum Elliot's first-half double - both from close range - put the visitors firmly in command by half-time.

Rovers reduced their deficit when Marvin Andrews headed home early in the second half.

But a Graeme Holmes volley and a late Kevin Cawley finish re-established Alloa's dominance.
