Preview- Stirling Albion v Cowdenbeath

Posted April 11, 2012

After back to back league defeats for the first time in 13 months we will be looking to get back to winning ways when we make our second and final visit of the season to the Doubletree Dunblane Stadium to face relegation threatened Stirling Albion.


Colin Cameron will have two players missing for the trip to Stirling. Gary Fisher broke his foot in last week’s defeat from Arbroath and will be out of action for the rest of the season while Kenny Adamson will be suspended for the match following his red card last Saturday.


We have played 16 away league games this season. On our travels we have won six, drawn six and lost four. In these games we have scored 27 goals, conceding 17.


Stirling Albion currently sit at the foot of the table on 31 points, two points behind Albion Rovers and Forfar Athletic. Since the last meeting of the sides in February the Binos have played nine league games winning against Brechin City twice, the second coming last Saturday at Glebe Park, and Albion Rovers. They have drawn with both Forfar Athletic and Arbroath but lost to Dumbarton, Stenhousemuir, Forfar Athletic and Airdrie United.

In their 16 home games this season they have won four, drawn five and lost seven. They have scored 21 times but conceded 25 goals.


In the previous three meetings this season we have been undefeated with two home wins and an away draw. Back in October goals from Jordan Morton and a Marc McKenzie penalty gave us a 2-0 win at Central Park. Our first scheduled visit to Stirling in mid- December was postponed due to a frozen pitch. Albion paid their second visit to Central Park in February with Lewis Coult scoring his first senior hat trick in a 4-1 win McKenzie also once again on target with Gary Thom scoring a consolation. The Binos also finished the game with ten men after Josh Flood was sent off in the closing minutes. Ten days later we made our belated first visit to the Doubletree Dunblane Stadium for a 1-1 draw with Thom giving the home side an interval lead before Coult got a second half equaliser.


The Miners Mini Tours (sponsored by Wee Jimmies) bus will leave Central Park at 1. 15 p.m. with seats still available for non- members at £12 for adults and £9 for OAP and under 12s. Families cost is £17.
To book your seat phone 01383 511562.

Cowden fans will be housed in the away stand with admission charges being Adult - £14, OAP/Student £8 and Child (under 16) £5.


Referee on Saturday is Craig Charleston who will be assisted by Michael Banks and Colin McAlpine.
