Raith Rovers 2-1 Cowdenbeath

Raith Rovers had to come from behind to beat bottom side Cowdenbeath in the Scottish Championship Fife derby.

The visitors went ahead before half-time when Kudus Oyenuga found the bottom corner after latching on to Craig Sutherland's pass.

Raith pulled level after the break, Kevin Moon pouncing on a loose ball following midfielder Barrie McKay's free-kick.

But Christian Nade fired home after being picked out by Calum Elliot.
