BEDLAM ensued as Alfie Robinson’s late winner sparked incredible scenes on the touchline as Cowden left it late against Caledonian Braves.

The centre-back’s header from a last-minute corner went through the goalkeeper’s legs and into the back of the net for a 1-0 win.

Robinson rushed to the bench to celebrate with the coaching staff jumping on their jubilant players.

It showed what the result, against a club that has scored 72 league goals this season, meant to the Cowden players, who worked really hard for the three points.

It was a game which produced few really good openings, as well-organised defences kept the respective attacks in check, and most good goal efforts came from shots from free-kicks.

That Cowdenbeath were able to shut-out the Lowland League’s third top scoring team without suspended veteran defender, Iain Davidson, said a lot for the performance of new on loan signing from Dunfermline, Sam Young.

The 17 year-old was as cool as they came, dealing expertly with a number of tricky situations effectively.

Goalkeeper, Danny Farrell, was also very cool, and along with Alfie Robinson and skipper, Jordan Armstrong, were outstanding in blunting the Braves’ attack.

All in all it was one of the Blue Brazil’s best home performances of the season, and gives them a base to produce a challenge to move well up the table in the closing 10 games.

Cowden started well and in the second minute Armstrong got on the end of a Scott Walker cross and his header posed problems for Braves, but there was no home man on the edge of the six yard box to convert.

The Braves were a decent moving side though and in 12 minutes a three man move saw Jamie Walker produce a fine diving save from Farrell.

On the half hour Scott Sinclair burst clear of the Braves’ cover and his curling 18 yarder flew inches wide, then seconds later another Walker cross was met by Dan Watt, but before he could score from close in Jack Duncan scooped the ball clear.

Then on the half-time whistle it took a timely clearance by John Guthrie to deny Sinclair after good work by Walker down the right.

Five minutes into the second period Braves’ Scott Forrester sent a curling 20-yard free-kick to test Farrell at full stretch to make the save.

With 12 minutes left a header across the face of the Cowden area looked certain to create a goal for Caledonian’s Ross McNeill, but before the striker could reach the ball, Farrell managed to scramble the ball clear.

Two corners were forced by the Blues as time was running out and from one of them, in the last minute, Robinson nodded home the winner.
