Bankies should have won this game but they let victory slip through their hands by slack play in the second half when they were leading by two goals to one.
Cowdenbeath were always dangerous and payed the same type of football as Bankies - the 4-2-4 formation.
Both teams played good football at times but to be fair to them the mud did not help much and by the end of the match they all looked like coalmen.
In the opening minutes of the game, Bankies who were playing with the wind behind them, almost went ahead through Tony Moy who shot just scraped the post.
It was the visitors who opened the scoring in the 8th minute when left back Mowbray crossed the ball, after a fine run up the wing, to see Donaldson score with a magnificent flying header.
This rocked Bankies slightly and it was some time before the could settle down and the visitors now piled on the pressure.
Five minutes before the match started Bankies signed Walter Gerard of Berwick Rangers. Walter who played as centre, is an ex- ES Clydebank player. Walter finished off a Moy move in 32 minutes when he helped the ball into the net with the keeper well beaten.
Bankies took strength from this and four minutes later Tony Moy scored one himself from a Russell cross.
A second half switch by Cowdenbeath paid off. A junior trialist playing at inside left was switched to the middle and began to create a great deal of trouble in the Bankies goal area.
With 60 minutes gone, Cowdenbeath equalised in a similar manner to their first goal. This time right back Rolland started an attacking move on the right wing, crossed the ball over and Clark was there to meet it with his head.
Try as they did, Bankies could not gain the upper hand again mainly through bad passing and the resolute defensive role of the visitors.
The visitors broke out of their defensive cocoon with five minutes to go and after forcing a corner Junior was on the spot to push the ball past keeper MacLachlan.
