League 2 leaders Peterhead came from behind to win at Cowdenbeath and move five points ahead at the top of the table. 

David Cox gave Cowden the lead but Shane Sutherland replied soon after and Rory McAllister then struck to hand the Blue Toon the initiative.

McAllister added another goal deep into the second half to seal the victory, Peterhead’s fifth in succession. 

It meant they pulled further in front of Clyde, who were not in action.  Edinburgh, meanwhile, defeated Berwick to reclaim second spot. 

The night did not get off to the best of starts for Jim McInally’s side, former Blue Toon player Cox smashing the hosts in front in the 17th minute.

However, Cowden’s lead lasted just six minutes with Sutherland burying a close-range effort to draw the visitors level.

Peterhead turned the match around when McAllister flashed a 35th minute  shot from inside the box high into the net and the Balmoor captain netted again with nine minutes remaining to settle the contest.
