MATCH PREVIEW - FORFAR ATHLETIC (H)

PostedFebruary 22, 2016

We are once again in home League 1 action on Tuesday night when we host Forfar Athletic with a 7.45 p,m. kick off.
It's a vital 'six pointer' for both sides with the Loons, who have played a game less than us, sitting in ninth place in the table six points behind us.
The two previous games this season have seen Cowden wins on each occasion. Back in September goals from Gordon Smith and Greig Spence either side of Gavin Swankie's equaliser knocked Forfar off the top of the table.
By the time we visited Station Park in December Forfar's winless run had seen them slide down the table and Greig Spence's winner was enough for us to leapfrog them.
After their bright start which yielded 13 points from their first six games and saw Dick Campbell pick up the League 1 Manager of the Month award for August things have gone pear shaped for the Loons who have picked up just six points from their subsequent 17 league fixtures.
Campbell's seven and a half year reign at Station Park came to an end following our win there in December and he was replaced by former Airdrie boss Gary Bollan.
Bollan has however had a tough start to his new job with only a point gained from his five league games in charge as well as a Scottish Cup defeat from Linlithgow Rose.
Both sides go into the game looking for their first win of 2016. After our defeat from Peterhead the Loons were in evening action on Saturday at Ayr going down 2-1 at Somerset Park before the live BBC Alba cameras.
COWDEN HOME FORM
Saturday's 3-2 defeat from the inform Peterhead was our third successive defeat at Central Park since we closed 2015 with a 4-2 win over Ayr.
