Cowdenbeath remain in the SPFL

Saturday 12th May 2018

Cowdenbeath retained their SPFL status after a dramatic 3-2 win over Highland League champions Cove Rangers at Central Park.

Harvey Swann's early penalty was quickly cancelled out by Mitch Megginson and the prolific striker fired John Sheran's team ahead before the break.

Swann's free-kick levelled things up shortly after half-time and Brad Smith scored the winner with 20 minutes left in front of 1,762 fans.

Cove had Paul McManus, Scott Ross and Eric Watson sent off in stoppage time as tempers frayed in a high-pressure match, which followed a goalless draw in the first leg.
