Cowdenbeath 1 Berwick Rangers 2

Berwick are still favourites to go down as bottom club in Division 2 this season but they made their point, three of them infact, at Central Park when two goals from 20 year old Scott Gemmill (30, 62) cancelled out an early Cowden goal from Drough (8).

The top scorer in the Buddies reserve side last season was the border hero and now Cowdenbeath are back in relegation play-off trouble following their home defeat and Queens Park's win at Brechin.

Two matches against QP and one against another fellow relegation candidate, Ayr United (next weekend), now face the Blue Brazil in the '
run-in' and with Alloa, Airdrie Utd and Ross County still to come as well 'Beath find themselves far from in the clear as they bid for a third successive season out of the SFL basement division.

It's unlikely that Berwick will survive to even a play-off (they simply don't have enough games left) but today's result was the Wee Gers saying to their Fife rivals "
if we go down we're taking you with us if possible."

A disasterous result for Cowdenbeath made even worse by the fact that their local rivals East Fife won the Third Division at Firs Park with a win over East Stirlingshire. The chance of like for like and Fife team for Fife team at the end of the season is still very much on as the Third Division promotion/2nd Division relegation issues start to get interesting for the neutral looking for meaningful fixtures at the end of the 2007/8 campaign.
