The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - THE SCORE -

ove Rangers con­tin­ued their storm­ing start to the League 2 sea­son with a de­served vic­tory against Cow­den­beath at Cen­tral Park.

A Mitch Meg­gin­son strike and a dou­ble from Fraser Aird gave the vis­i­tors all three points with for­mer Peter­head winger David Cox on tar­get for the Blue Brazil.

Cove man­ager Paul Hart­ley said: “We showed great char­ac­ter. We started the game well but then con­ceded a goal.

“But we kept play­ing and we were pa­tient and worked the ball.

“It was a tough fix­ture but we showed we are a unit and we showed our qual­ity and our class in the fi­nal third. We like to play pos­i­tive foot­ball so I am re­ally pleased with how we per­formed.”

Hart­ley’s men were on the top from the first whis­tle with Blair Yule and De­clan Glass go­ing close in the early stages.

But it was the hosts who made the break­through when Cox got on the end of a Har­vey Swann cross to nod home af­ter 15 min­utes.

Cove did not al­low their heads to drop and got the goal their play
