Albion Rovers 2-1 Queen's Park

Albion Rovers were rewarded for their efforts to clear their pitch of snow as they beat Queen's Park to move level on points with league leaders Arbroath.

Scott Chaplain headed Rovers in front in 17 minutes from a Mark McGuigan cross and the Spiders' task was made even harder when Bryan Wharton was sent off for two bookings in five minutes.

Yet they levelled when John Carter headed in a Darren Miller free-kick.

But almost straight away Gary Phillips headed home the winner for Rovers.
