MATCH PREVIEW – DUNFERMLINE ATHLETIC

After getting back to winning ways against Falkirk we are quickly at home again on Tuesday evening when we host near neighbours Dunfermline Athletic in the third West Fife derby of the season.
It was a great team effort which saw us come from behind to beat the Bairns on Saturday afternoon with stand in captain John Armstrong bagging a brace along with the inform Kane Hemmings and Jamie Stevenson.
In the two previous derby games so far the Pars have held the upper hand with two convincing wins.
Back on the opening day of the league season goals from Andy Barrowman, a brace from Ryan Thomson and Josh Falkingham saw Jim Jeffries’ side run out 4-0 winners on their last visit to Central Park.
In October we made the short trip west and went down 3-0 with Joe Cardle, an own goal from John Armstrong and Joe Cardle getting the Pars goals.
The game will however be best remembered for the extended half time break after referee Kevin Clancy had to retire from officiating after a collision with Colin Cameron!

PLAYER TO WATCH
Josh Falkingham is the man Cowden fans love to hate after a few eventful tussles in our matches with Arbroath last season.
Falkingham returned to full time football in the summer when he left Gayfield to join the Pars and has scored three times in 24 games so far this season.
