Blue Brazil still fighting

Cowdenbeath kept alive their hopes of escaping the relegation play-offs with a 2-1 win at Raith, who themselves are all but safe thanks to their goal difference.

Reece Donaldson headed over from 10 yards after 16 minutes as Raith created the game's first clear-cut chance but it was the visitors who were soon ahead.

Kane Hemmings released Rory McKeown through on goal and he lobbed the advancing Lee Robinson to open the scoring.

Robinson made a crucial one-on-one save from Hemmings but the goalkeeeper was beaten by Lewis Milne from close range with nine minutes left, after the midfielder had worked himself an opening.

Substitute Greig Spence pulled a goal back, running on to Calum Elliot's ball and tucking through Thomas Flynn's legs but Raith could not force a late leveller that would have seen them mathematically safe.

Cowdenbeath are a point behind Alloa with one game left.
