Cowdenbeath 2-4 Dumbarton

Two goals from Mitch Megginson helped Dumbarton edge a six-goal thriller against Cowdenbeath at Central Park.

Kyle Miller broke the deadlock within three minutes but the visitors struck back a minute later through Colin Nish.

And Dumbarton took the lead when Megginson fired home, only for James Stevenson to equalise soon after.

The Sons took the lead again through Christopher Kane and secured the points when Megginson grabbed his second of a productive afternoon.
