Cowdenbeath v Brechin City - Play off Final, 1st Leg

PostedMay 11, 2010

It's show time at Central Park on Wednesday night (7.45pm kick off) when Cowdenbeath FC and Brechin City FC clash in the 1st Leg of the Irn-Bru First Division Play Off Final.

Both side are within two games of making the step up to the Irn-Bru First Division after beating the odds to reach the final with aggregate wins over Alloa Athletic and Airdrie United respectively.

Danny Lennon's side have home advantage in the 1st leg before traveling up to Brechin on Sunday for the decider.

"It's a special occasion for everyone connected with Cowdenbeath Football Club", commented Lennon.

"We were playing Third Division football last season but the players have been fantastic all season and have earned the right to get to this stage. We now need another couple of big performances if we are to overcome a very good Brechin side.

"Brechin will be full of confidence after knocking out Airdrie United but so are we after recent results. We know what we have to do and will be looking to take a lead up to Glebe Park on Sunday.

"The fans have been terrific all season and the backing again at Alloa was top class. We really appreciate it and will be doing all we can to secure a place in the First Division."

Games between the Blue Brazil and Brechin City have generally been tight this season with the Glebe Park side winning the opening fixture 3-1 before two consecutive draws (0-0 and 3-3). Cowden won the most recent encounter 4-0 at Central Park at the end of April.

Lennon has almost a full squad to choose from with only Dene Droudge and Danny Mackay unavailable.
