Following a terrific point at home to Dunfermline at the weekend, this evening we welcome Cowdenbeath to Cliftonhill, a win or draw most likely seeing Rovers leap-frog Stenhousemuir and occupy third spot once again.
The sides faced each other on Match Day 3 of this seasons Ladbrokes League One campaign, Blue Brazil running out 1-0 winners that afternoon. Player/manager Darren Young however believes that despite Cowdenbeath’s victory in the first meeting between the sides this season, that game will have little baring on who comes out on top tonight.
“Both teams personnel and formations have changed since then”, Young commented.
Colin Nish’s side are currently flirting with the relegation play-off place so they will be eager to collect all three points, as well as get back to winning ways after a heavy 7-0 defeat to Peterhead at the weekend.
“we’ll go into the game just like any other. Cowdenbeath will be looking to bounce back after Saturday’s defeat so they’ll be really hoping to make amends, whilst we’ll be looking to carry on where we left off against Dunfermline and hopefully pick up another valuable three points.”
“It was a great point to pick up against Dunfermline. We showed great character to come back into the game with a wonder strike from Josh, but the work-rate and determination shown was also immense and exactly what I’ve came to expect from the boys over this past year and a half. At times we could have passed the ball better but overall I can’t have any complaints.”
With both John Gemmell and Young returning from their period suspended, the coaching staff will have a full strength squad to pick from for tonight, something that may prove vital as the season continues and players need rested.
