A penalty from Gary Fraser proved to be enough to give us our first win of the season over the Coatbrige side who were left adrift at the bottom of the table.

Following the weekend loss to Annan there were five changes in the side with Swann, Deas, Allan, Fraser and Henvey returning to the starting line up.

With six minutes gone a Fraser free kick was knocked into the path of Allan by Renton but Clarke cleared the danger.

Escursola then when on a run beating three defenders but a well timed challenge buy Todd saw his shot go out for a corner.

In 24 minutes a Fraser throw in saw the ball reach Todd but his close range shot lacked power while at the other end Fotheringham made a run into the Cowden box but his low shot was blocked by Todd.

In the closing minutes of the first half Ross picked up on a slack clearance but sent his 20 yard shot wide while a downward header from Renton following a Fraser corner came off the Rovers crossbar.

Five minutes into the second half Mullen’s 25 yard free kick was tipped onto the bar by Morrison

The visitors then had their best chance of the night on the hour when Newell’s header from a Philips cross shaved past the far post.

However two minutes later we got the only goal of the night when Buchanan was brought down by Griffiths and Gary FRASER slotted home the resultant spot kick.

Minutes later Deas got on the end of a Mullen free kick and sent his header just wide while with 20 minutes to go we hit the Rovers bar once more this time from Buchanan’s 22 yard shot. While in the closing stages Renton twice came close to adding to the score.
