Dunfermline 3-0 Cowdenbeath- Match Report

Pars reach summit

Dunfermline ran out 3-0 winners against Cowdenbeath to move to the top of the league.

The Pars dominated proceedings early on but were made to wait until the 28th minute for their opening goal when Joseph Cardle slotted home from 18 yards.

Cowden goalkeeper Thomas Flynn made a smart save from Stephen Husband's penalty on the half hour after John Armstrong fouled Ryan Thomson in the box.

Cowden were then dealt a blow when the in-form stopper had to leave the field injured just before half-time.

The second half was delayed when a linesman was injured and had to be replaced by a paying spectator.

Dunfermline finally got their second when Cowden's Josh Armstrong scored an own goal in the 77th minute.

Craig Drago finished from close range in the 84th minute to make it 3-0 and cap a powerful Dunfermline display.
