Goals in either half saw City run out winners to consolidate their place at the top of the table.

There were two changes to the side which had draw with Clyde a fortnight before with Josh Skelly and Harvey Swann returning while both Blair Malcolm and David Cox dropped to the bench after picking up injuries.

We had a good claim for a penalty waived aside in the opening minute when Allan went down after being bundled by Balatoni.

In 14 minutes a Fraser ball into the box saw Balatoni send the ball straight to Renton 14 yards out and his finish curled inches wide.

But in 20 minutes City scored in their first attack.Taylor sent over a low cross from the left, and with Shepherd waiting at the far post Jason TALBOT slid the ball into his own net trying to clear.

Then seven minutes later Blair Henderson hit a post with a low shot after Marsh hesitated in making a clearance.

Six minutes from the break an Allan pass sent Renton clean through and it took brave work by Antell to deny the striker.

Three minutes after the break Skelly sent a cross into the City six yard box but Allan just failed to turn it home.

However, in City’s first serious attack of the second period they got a second goal. In 56 minutes a long throw by Taylor was not dealt with by the Cowden defence and Blair HENDERSON’S powerful header beat McGurn.

Then with 23minutes to go Talbot was given a straight red card for a tackle on City’s Robbie McIntyre and it effectively ended our challenge.
