Raith in a Stew
Greg Stewart's 81st-minute equaliser rescued a crucial point for relegation-threatened Cowdenbeath in a 1-1 draw at home to Raith.
The Blue Brazil started brightly with Kane Hemmings sending a low shot wide from the edge of the area after four minutes.
Joseph Hamill tried his luck for the visitors midway through the half with a curling effort which missed the target after good hold-up play from Brian Graham.
A neat interchange from Colin Cameron's men almost opened up Rovers after 31 minutes but Hemmings was again unable to hit the target.
The home side were made to pay three minutes after the interval when Graham nodded in Allan Walker's corner unmarked.
But Grant Murray's side were unable to hold on to their slender lead and succumbed nine minutes from the end when Stewart followed up Craig Moore's parried effort.
