Cowdenbeath 0-1 Raith Rovers

Substitute Christian Nade's late header secured a narrow win for Raith Rovers at Central Park.

Cowdenbeath goalkeeper Robbie Thomson had kept Raith up until then, blocking a shot from Rory McKeown and a Ross Callachan header.

Sean Higgins, Jordan Halsman and Iain Campbell had chances for Cowden but could not find the target.

Nade camon for Calum Elliot and settled the match by converting Mark Stewart's cross.
