Cowdenbeath 3 - 0 Albion Rovers

Tuesday 14th February 2012
L Coult (10, 26)
M McKenzie (21)

Threesy does it for Blue Brazil

Albion failed to reply to three first-half goals as Cowdenbeath cruised to a 3-0 victory at Central Park.

The home side took an early lead after 10 minutes when Lewis Coult was on hand to fire home Jon Robertson's cross.

Robertson was again involved when they doubled their lead 10 minutes later, his cross finished neatly by Marc McKenzie.

Coult added the third and his second five minutes later, McKenzie with the cross after Albion failed to clear Mark Ramsay's original effort.

The visitors were clearly unsettled and failed to fashion any clear-cut chances after the break.

Cowdenbeath were relentless in the closing stages but could not add to their tally.

Victory means the Miners maintain their unbeaten home league record and move four points clear at the top of the table.

Cameron still sidelined for Cowdenbeath

Second Division leaders Cowdenbeath host Albion with player-manager Colin Cameron still ruled out by a knee injury.

Cameron is joined on the sidelines by Thomas O'Brien and Lee Makel.

The Blue Brazil boss is wary of Tuesday's opponents, saying: "John Gemmell and Tony Stevenson are important players for Albion Rovers and they are available for this one after being suspended.

"They have added new strikers as well with Rangers' Jack Werndly coming in and Danny MacKay from Kilmarnock, so they need to be watched.

"We defeated Stirling 4-1 at the weekend but were not at our best in the first half. We will need to play well for the 90 minutes against an Albion team that have given us problems this season."

Albion welcome back Stevenson and Gemmell to give them a full squad for the clash with table-topping Cowdenbeath.

Manager Paul Martin is looking for his men to build on a 1-1 draw with East Fife that ended a run of five straight defeats.

He said: "I am hoping the draw with East Fife will give our guys the confidence to take the game to Cowdenbeath.

"We have the right to believe that we can take something from this one as have run them close twice already this season.

"They were hanging on when they beat us 2-1 and in the 3-3 draw we were in front three times and their goalkeeper was man of the match."
