Headed goals in either half from Greg Stewart and Lewis Coult saw us rack up our sixth successive home league win to move eight points clear of the third place Warriors.

There was one change to the starting line up from the derby win at Methil with Kal Naismith replacing Marc McKenzie.

We opened the scoring after 15 minutes with our first serious attack of the afternoon. Cowan sent a cross into the visitors box and Greg Stewart sent a well placed header past Brown.

The Warriors pressed for an equaliser and Flynn denied Murray, Paton and Ferguson in quick succession.

O’Brien then sent in a header which lacked power and was easily saved by Brown, then a Morton cutback which was destined for Stewart was intercepted by McKinlay.

Two minutes after the break the visitors made claims for a penalty when Ferguson went down in the box after a challenge by Mbu but their claims were waived aside by referee McDermott.

Ten minutes later Naismith fired in a free kick which was well held by Brown, while at the other end after 66 minutes Paton unleashed a long range free kick which was saved by Flynn.

McKenzie and Coult replaced Naismith and Linton for the closing 20 minutes of the game and both made an immediate impact on the game.

Coult opened the Warriors defence with a pass to McKenzie but the little midfielder blasted his shot over the bar.

However with three minutes to go we secured our win with Coult’s fifth goal of the campaign.

Robertson chipped the ball over the Stenny goalmouth to the waiting Coult who headed home from close range.

As the clock wound down we almost added a third goal when Cowan found himself clear on goal but his shot was saved by Brown.
