Match Preview: Cowdenbeath v Brechin City

PostedOctober 22, 2009

It's top of the table football this Saturday when one of the division's top sides visit Central Park with second top Brechin City up against third placed Cowden.

The Blue Brazil have been in fine form since their promotion to the 2nd Division with the recent form particularly impressive. Danny Lennon's team have taken 17 points from the last 8 games, scoring 15 goals in the process and keeping 5 clean sheets. However, the Glebe Park side are a long-time establish club at this level and are regular promotion contenders so it has the potential to be the game of the day in the SFL.

"Brechin are a very good side and we know it will be one of the toughest tests this season", said Lennon.

"We are in fine form though and the players will have the confidence to go out and express themselves. We have shown that we are capable of playing very good football, we can score goals and just as importantly defend as a team and give 100% for each other. We have set the bar high and it's our aim keep improving.

"It was very pleasing to get an away win last weekend. We started the game brightly and scored a lovely goal but credit to Arbroath as they put us under severe pressure in the 2nd half. But we defended terrifically and limited them to very few clear cut chances."

Stand-in skipper Craig Winter will come up against one of his former sides and is likely to face former Cowden favourite Gary Fusco in the engine room.

David Hay has made a good recovery from the head knock he received against Arbroath last weekend and is expected to take his place between the sticks on Saturday. Mark Baxter played 90 minutes during the week in a bounce game against Spartans and will feature in the Reserve League Cup tie against East Fife on Tuesday but Saturday may come to soon. Long-term injury victims Darren McGregor, John Dempster and Danny Mackay will once again miss out.

Saturday's Mascots are Conor Ferguson and Jade Donaldson. Conor is 8-years old and is the Grandson of Director Sandy Ferguson. Jade (11) is a primary 7 pupil at Hill of Beath Primary School and her hobbies are dancing and watching football.

Admission The gates open at 1.30pm with admission set at: Adults 12, Concessions 6, Adult and Child 15.
