Cowdenbeath 0-2 Falkirk

Rory Loy celebrates after scoring for Falkirk against Cowdenbeath

Two second-half goals gave Falkirk victory over Cowdenbeath and moved the Bairns to within two points of second-place Hamilton.

Neither side managed to dominate the first half in tricky playing conditions at Central Park.

Mark Millar fired home a fantastic effort to put the visitors in front early in the second period.

And Rory Loy lost his marker to fire in a low drive and double the advantage for Gary Holt's side.
