Albion Rovers 2-0 Berwick Rangers

Two second-half goals helped Albion Rovers beat Berwick Rangers and move eight points clear at the top of Scottish League Two.

Berwick goalkeeper Michael Andrews denied Mark McGuigan as the home side pressed in the first half.

Chris Cadden's first professional goal broke the deadlock shortly after the hour mark, the midfielder slotting home from Edward Fearns' pass.

Mark McGuigan headed in Rovers' second from Marc McKenzie's cross.
