Weather permitting we have another home Ladbrokes League Two match on Saturday afternoon when we welcome Edinburgh City to Central Park with a 3 p.m. kick off.
Last Saturday's narrow defeat from Berwick saw us drop back to the foot of the table, two points behind the four teams above us one of whom are our visitors who went down to their first league defeat since October when Arbroath won 2-0 at Meadowbank Stadium.
The two previous meetings this season have gone in our favour with a 2-0 home win in August, the last time City lost a game on the road, thanks to goals in either half from Kris Renton and Lewis Moore., while we drew 1-1 at Meadowbank in November when Renton's first half opener was cancelled out by Dougie Gair with 11 minutes to go.
The draw at Meadowbank was during the Edinburgh side's run of ten unbeaten games in the league which saw manager Gary Jardine pick up the manager of the month for both November and December while keeper Andrew Stobbie picked up the player of the month for December after conceding just once in the league.
It has been a remarkable transformation for Jardine's side who made a slow start to adapting to life in the SPFL and who were winless in their opening 17 league and cup games after dominating the Lowland League in the previous two seasons.
A talisman in their change of fortunes is November player of the month Marc Laird who played in over 250 games in the English lower leagues and was snapped up on his return to his home city after being released by Yeovil Town.
Ousman See has also been amongst the goals this season hitting the opposition net seven times and was reputed to be attracting the attention of other clubs although City will be keen to hold onto the former Selkirk man as they consolidate their league status.
We also welcome back to Central Park former captain Joe Mbu who missed the game back in August due to suspension. Joe of course spent five eventful years at Central Park winning the Second Division title in 2012 along with a play off final win two years previously.
Fraser Mullen will be once again eligible for selection after serving a one game suspension last week against Berwick while new signing from Falkirk Liam Henderson could be in line to make his debut.
