Cowdenbeath 0-1 Dunfermline Athletic

Rhys McCabe hit a late winner against Cowdenbeath to keep Dunfermline Athletic 10 points clear at the top of Scottish League One.

The visiting fans had to wait till late in the game for a winner to arrive.

Declan Hughes was penalised for a foul on Faissal El Bakhtaoui and McCabe's free-kick found its way into the net off the defensive wall.

The result sends Cowden to the bottom of the division - a point behind Forfar Athletic and Brechin City.
