Cowdenbeath's sensational early season form continued as they blasted Stirling Albion out of the Challenge Cup.
Mixu Paatelainen's side took only 15 minutes to break the deadlock with a glorious strike from Pat Clarke.
Martyn Fotheringham then curled in a 30-yard free-kick before setting up Markus Paatelainen to shoot low into the net from 12-yards.
Scott Dalziel completing the scoring for the Fifers on 63 minutes from Liam Buchanan's clever assist.
