Cowdenbeath 1-4 Forfar Athletic

Forfar Athletic capitalised on Kieran Gibbons' first-half dismissal to ease to a first Scottish League One win in five months at Cowdenbeath.

Dean Brett scored a penalty after being fouled by Michael Kennedy but the hosts then conceded a spot-kick themselves.

Thomas O'Brien was brought down by Gibbons - his second booking resulting in a red card - and Andy Ryan netted.

Gareth Rodger's first-half header, Steven Craig's shot and Kerr Hay's drive gave Forfar a comfortable win.
