Match ends, Cowdenbeath 0, Stranraer 2.
Third-bottom Stranraer moved to within a point of Cowdenbeath after a well-deserved away win in League One.
Greig Spence wasted a good chance for Cowdenbeath early on and he had the ball in the net in the 30th minute only to be flagged offside.
Stranraer's Craig Malcolm and Andy Stirling both went close.
The deadlock was broken when Willie Gibson fired in a free-kick, then Malcolm converted a penalty following Fraser Kerr's foul on Stirling.
