Martyn Corrigan is in caretaker charge of the team following the departure of manager Stuart McLaren in the wake of last weekend’s 4-0 defeat to Elgin City.
We have the chance to leapfrog Cowdenbeath in the Ladbrokes League 2 table but will need to win away from home for the first time since December to do so.
Team news: Left-back Ross Forsyth remains sidelined with a knee injury and midfield duo Bryan Hodge and Aurelien Mazel are also set to miss out again, while Jack McCue is rated doubtful. There is better news on winger Moses Olanrewaju, whose ankle injury was re-diagnosed as soft tissue damage and not a minor fracture as first feared.
Opponents: Cowdenbeath were relegated after losing to Queen’s Park in the play-offs and new boss Liam Fox revamped the squad during the summer. Cowden have seven points from seven games – their last outing was a 0-0 draw at Arbroath but they went down 2-0 to Berwick Rangers in their most recent home game.
Past meetings: Since the memorable 3-3 draw that took us to the brink of the 2009/10 Division Two title, our record against Cowdenbeath is terrible. Four defeats out of four in 2010/11 were followed by three losses and a draw in 2011/12. Our last visit to Central Park was a 4-1 defeat in February 2012. Lewis Coult hit a hat-trick for the Blue Brazil and Marc McKenzie was also on target. Gary Thom got our goal and Josh Flood was sent off late on.
