Stenhousemuir 0 - 2 Cowdenbeath

L Coult (88)

Stewart in seventh heaven

Greg Stewart netted his seventh goal of the season as Cowdenbeath won 2-0 at Stenhousemuir to stay top of Division Two.

Stewart almost put the Blue Brazil ahead after 10 minutes, but his exquisite lob was tipped to safety by Alistair Brown.

Cowdenbeath took the lead after 37 minutes when Stewart swept home Mark Ramsay's cross, before the provider almost grabbed a goal of his own when heading wide.

Stenhousemuir's best chance fell to Ross McMillan 20 minutes from the end, but he fired over the bar from close range.

Lewis Coult made the points safe in the 88th minute, drilling home a Marc McKenzie centre, and Cowdenbeath could have added a third a minute later, but Brown parried away McKenzie's powerful drive.

Fitness test for Ferguson

Stenhousemuir midfielder Brown Ferguson will face a fitness test on Boxing Day to see if he can take his place in the Warriors' midfield against league leaders Cowdenbeath.

Ochilview assistant manager Kevin McGoldrick insists this is his side's biggest match of the season. He said: "This game is a major one for us as if we win it we are right in the hunt at the top of the table.

"We beat Cowdenbeath fairly comfortably at our place earlier in the season and then they beat us fairly comfortably at theirs so no-one really has the upper-hand.

"We do, however, go into it knowing that we can win and it would set us up for a really exciting 2012 if we pick up the three points."

Cowdenbeath have defender Kenny Adamson suspended.

The Blue Brazil are out for revenge for a 3-1 defeat at Ochilview back in August, with manager Colin Cameron saying: "We put in a poor performance that day and they deservedly beat us 3-1.

"We have the opportunity to put that right now and will take heart from the win we had over them at our place in November.

"We have drawn our last three games and still managed to lead the table.

"I want us to be leading the table after this game but having picked up three points and increased the gap over David Irons' side."
