IRN-BRU SECOND DIVISION:
ALBION ROVERS 0
THREE goals in 16 minutes earned Cowdenbeath a comfortable win over Albion Rovers at Central Park on Tuesday night.
Colin Cameron's SFL2 leaders were in blistering form in the first half as they extended their advantage at the top to four points.
Striker Lewis Coult scored either side of a Marc McKenzie effort to seal victory in next to no time.
Rovers have again dropped to ninth place in the table - after Forfar Athletic's 1-1 draw at home to Dumbarton - and are without a win in seven games.
Meanwhile, player/assistant manager Todd Lumsden has backed Rovers’ new signings to keep the club in the Irn-Bru Second Division.
The 34-year-old believes Jack Werndly and Daniel McKay can make a positive impact between now and the end of the season.
Both players made their Rovers debuts on Saturday when Jordan Halsman curled home a late equaliser to earn a 1-1 draw at home to East Fife.
And Lumsden saw enough to form the opinion that ex-Kilmarnock forward McKay and on-loan Rangers kid Werndly would be useful additions to the squad.
He said: “I thought both of them did well and we’re pleased with their contributions.
“Dan played up front on his own and we all know that the lone striker role is a difficult one.
“And Jack fitted nicely into our attacking three behind Dan and had a couple of chances for himself.
“We know all about the teams around us and we know who has quality. But there are good players here and we just have to focus on picking up points.”
On the personnel front, forward Andy Scott has left the club to join Junior outfit Shotts Bon Accord.
And centre-back Mick O'Byrne will miss the visit of Forfar on Saturday, February 25 after collecting his sixth caution of the season against East Fife.
