Cove Rangers' lead at the top League Two was extended to three points after a 3-0 victory over Albion Rovers.

The win, coupled with Cowdenbeath's goalless draw with Stirling Albion means their advantage grew by a point.

The Blue Brazil slipped to third, with Edinburgh City moving ahead of them on goal difference after beating 10-man Stenhousemuir 4-0.

Mitch Megginson scored a brace with defender Scott Ross adding the other for Paul Hartley's dominant Cove side.

While at Ainslie Park goals from Scott Shepherd and Conrad Balatoni put Edinburgh City 2-0 up in the first half before Stenhousemuir's Alan Cook was sent off for a second yellow card on 23 minutes, with Aidan Wilson and Danny Handling adding the third and fourth goals to give James McDonaugh's side a resounding victory.
