Cowdenbeath 4-1 Falkirk: ‘Well deserved’ win for Cowdenbeath

COLIN Cameron claimed he knew a win was going to come eventually for Cowdenbeath but after 17 matches and five painful months the sense of relief was clear.

The Blue Brazil had not tasted league victory since 1 September and were, as Cameron later described it, “like a dog with a bone” as they ensured they would not slip up again.

It all looked like being so different when Lyle Taylor turned John Armstrong inside out before drilling in the opener for Falkirk after less than two minutes.

Armstrong atoned when he drove in Lewis Coult’s 35th-minute knock-down and on-loan Rangers striker Kane Hemmings latched on another loose ball in the visitors’ box to drill in the second three minutes later.

Armstrong headed in at the back post 18 minutes from time and Jamie Stevenson’s deflected free-kick iced the cake for the Fifers, who had dropped dangerously into the relegation battle in recent weeks.

“It was well deserved,” said Cameron. “It was always going to come, it’s just taken a lot longer than we hoped. It’s a start and we’ve got to build on it now.”
