Dunfermline Athletic 2-1 Cowdenbeath

Michael Moffat scored twice as Dunfermline extended their winning run to five games with a home win over Cowdenbeath.

Cowdenbeath had started brighter of the two but were behind when Moffat finished off a good team move.

Player-manager Colin Nish was sent to the stands by the referee, but they hit back as Greig Spence slotted home.

Moffat came up trumps by winning and then scoring a penalty after the hour mark.
