Match Preview - St Johnstone - NOW 17th DEC

PostedDecember 12, 2012


This Monday at hopefully at the fifth time of asking we welcome Steve Lomas and his St Johnstone side to Central Park for our William Hill Scottish Cup Fourth Round tie.

To reach this stage we beat Vale of Leithen 8-1 at Central Park but the Perth Saints currently sixth in the Clydesdale Bank SPL will be a much sterner challenge for Colin Cameron’s side.

The winners of the tie will be away to St Mirren in the Fifth Round on Saturday 2nd February.

In the event of the game being postponed on Monday we will try again on Wednesday 19th December with a 7.45 p.m. kick off.


A special guest of the club on Saturday will be Andy Kinnell, who was the last man to captain Cowden in the top flight of Scottish Football during the 1970/71 season.

Andy of course later went onto play for St Johnstone. Welcome back to Central Park Andy!


We played our first game in three week’s at the Falkirk Stadium going down 2-0 to Falkirk with the Bairns scoring two goals in a nine minute spell just before the break.


Saints are in fifth place in the Clydesdale Bank SPL and have drawn their last two games.

A fortnight ago despite having Steven Anderson and Chris Millar red carded they held out to take a point in Paisley.

Murray Davidson had given the Perth side the lead with Paul Dummett equalising for Danny Lennon’s side.

On Saturday they drew 2-2 at McDiarmid Park against Hearts who took the lead through John Sutton before Rowan Vine grabbed an equaliser.

Andy Drive restored the visitors lead before the lead before Steven McLean grabbed a second equaliser on the hour mark.


Cowden fans will be keeping an eye on Scottish internationalist Murray Davidson who had a spell on loan to us from Livingston in 2007.


Taking charge of the match is John Beaton who will be assisted by George Drummond and Stuart Hodge. Fourth official is Calum Murray who is also in Scottish Cup action the following day taking charge of the Capital derby at Easter Road.
