MATCH PREVIEW - BERWICK RANGERS (H)

PostedAugust 25, 2017

After last weeks narrow defeat at Montrose, our first league defeat since April, we return to Central Park on Saturday afternoon when we face Berwick Rangers with a 3pm kick off.

With only three games gone and with two heavy defeats in their last two games the Borderers parted company with manager John Coughlin on Tuesday and will have the trio of fomer assistant manager and one time Cowden youth Myles Allan, Jonathan Craig and injured player Steven Notman in charge of the side as they head north.

The Betfred Cup campaign was an uneventful one for the Borderers who finished bottom of Group F with their only point coming against fellow League Two side Edinburgh City in a 2-2 draw at Ainslie Park with City taking the bonus point from the penalty shoot out.

The other games saw defeats from Morton (0-1), Queen's Park (2-3) and Motherwell (0-1).

The league campaign started brightly enough with a 3-1 home win over Clyde at Shielfield Park with Andy Irving , on loan from Hearts, bagging a brace along with former Cowden man Arron Murrell as the ended day one top of the table.

The following Saturday however saw a 4-0 loss to Stirling Albion at Forthbank which was followed up by a 5-1 home defeat from Annan last Saturday as Peter Murphy picked up his first league win as boss of the Galabankies after Michael McKenna had given Berwick an early lead.

Last season our return to the bottom division saw Berwick finish above us for the first time since 2005 with two wins at Central Park helping them along their way with Steven Thomson scoring all their goals in 2-0 and 1-0 wins.

However at Sheilfield we drew 1-1, with Cameron Muirhead scoring his first senior goal after Thomson and Notman were red carded, and 3-1 in the last meeting of the sides in March with Robbie Buchanan, Brian Ross and Kris Renton getting the goals while Greg Rutherford pulled back a late goal for the home side.

There will be a minutes silence before the game in tribute to long serving supporter Isobel Conway who suddenly passed away last week at the age of 79. Isobel for many years helped run the club shop along with husband Ben and everyone at Central Park sends their condolences to Ben and his family at this sad time.
