COWDENBEATH have been given suspended sentence by the Scottish Football Association after being charged along with tomorrow's opponents, Brechin City, at the Ladbrokes League 2 match between the sides in December.

Following the match v Brechin at Glebe Park December 14, Cowdenbeath FC were charged by the SFA (along with Brechin) with infringing Disciplinary Rule 204.

This related to the incident that arose in the final minute after Cowdenbeath scored their goal in a 2-1 defeat through Robbie Buchanan.

Said Cowden secretary David Allan: "The charge in essence was that Cowdenbeath FC did not prevent their players and team staff from being involved in a confrontation with our opponents as well as in a hostile and argumentative situation.

"Cowdenbeath FC admitted the offence and submitted a plea in mitigation. The club was censured plus a £1,000 fine was imposed on a suspended basis contingent on the club not re-offending under the same rule before the end of the current season."
