After last Saturday’s postponement against Stranraer, we get back into cinch League Two action with our first visit of the season to Ochilview to face Stenhousemuir with a 3pm kick off.

It was a pre season of change at Ochilview with former Cowden promotion winner Stephen Swift taking over for the closing few games of last season following the departure of Davie Irons.

Swift has made wholesale changes to the squad with 21 new players arriving at the club. Six players followed the manager from his old club BSC Glasgow (now Broomhill) – Ross Lyon, former Central Parker Declan Hughes, Michael Anderson, Jamie Mills, Ryan Marshall and Ryan Tierney. Adam Brown and Robert Thomson arrived from Alloa while Nicky Jamieson has also been signed on loan from the Wasps. Thomas Orr (Stranraer), Bernard Coll (Forfar Athletic), Jordan Tapping (East Stirlingshire), Ross Forbes and former Cowden favourite Nat Wedderburn arrived from Dumbarton, Airdrie duo Sean Crighton and Euan O’Reilly, Darren Christie (Pollok), Craig Reid (Kelty Hearts) and David Wilson (Clyde) were the permanent signings while Jamie Lyon and Jon Craig are on loan from Partick Thistle and Kilmarnock respectively.

The Warriors opened their season with a 2-1 win over Dumbarton in the Premier Sports Cup at the Rock but subsequently lost their next four cup and league matches. Partick Thistle and St Mirren both won their cup games at Ochilview 2-1 and 3-1 respectively while Dunfermline won 4-1 at East End Park.

The opening league game then saw the third home defeat of the season with Stirling Albion winning 1-0. Their only league point of the season came at Cliftonhill in a 2-2 draw with Albion Rovers who snatched a 90th minute equaliser after the Warriors had overcome the loss of a goal early in the second half.

The SPFL Trust Trophy saw a home 3-0 win over Dundee United B but last Friday they went down 1-0 to Edinburgh City at Ainslie Park.

For us we go into the match on the back of two successive wins over Elgin City and Fraserburgh.


REFEREE – Mike Roncone
