Cowdenbeath 0-2 Alloa Athletic

Alloa Athletic beat Cowdenbeath to move out of the Scottish Championship relegation zone.

Cowden's Kudus Oyenuga had a goal ruled out for offside and his team-mate Colin Nish went close in the first half.

The Wasps could have gone ahead through Kevin Cawley but he missed from close range.

Mark Docherty converted Isaac Layne's pass to put Alloa ahead before Cawley fired home as Cowdenbeath replaced Alloa in second-bottom place.
