David Cox admits the hand of history is weighing heavily on embattled Cowdenbeath.
A late goal saw Peterhead condemn a stuffy Cowdenbeath side to the pyramid play-offs.
Veteran Montrose striker Chris Templeman had hoped to be dancing with his team-mates on the Ochilview pitch to celebrate clinching the League Two title and the club’s first promotion since 1995.
Cowdenbeath went down to a narrow 1-0 defeat at the hands of Berwick at Shielfield on Saturday, but not for the want of trying.
A Chris Templeman goal gave Montrose an important win and extended their lead at the top of the table to four points.
Brad Smith is adamant Cowdenbeath can still climb off the bottom of League Two after they claimed a deserved draw away to Annan on Saturday.
