Albion Rovers 2-0 Annan Athletic

Albion Rovers closed the gap on League Two leaders Arbroath to four points with a hard-fought victory over Annan.

Marc McKenzie was twice denied by Annan goalkeeper Alex Mitchell before he broke the deadlock after the break.

Stuart McColm and Ryan McStay were both kept out by home keeper Neil Parry as they threatened to level.

With the visitors pressing late on, Rovers broke up the park and Josh Mullins sealed the win, finishing from John Gemmell's centre.
