Match Preview: Cowdenbeath v Dundee

PostedSeptember 24, 2010

Cowden have home advantage for the first time in a month when Dundee come to town on Saturday on Irn-Bru First Division business. The Dens Park side are one of Scottish football's sleeping giants and with a big following it promises to be another ocassion to savour for all Blue Brasilians.

Jimmy Nicholl's side picked up full points against Partick Thistle last time out at Central Park and secured a creditable 3 points in the interim on the road against Greenock Morton (2-1) and Dunfermline Athletic (1-2).

"Dundee are one of the big names in the division and have a set up to match many SPL sides", commented NIcholl.

"They have had a sticky start to the season but they have some very good players and will come good. We know that we will have to keep up the good work of recent weeks in order to compete but we should not be overly concerned by the opposition and have confidence in our own ability to hold our own."

Dundee, under the management of Gordon Chisholm and Billy Dodds, have had an indifferent start to the season but are expected to be in the promotion mix come the end of the season after investing heavily in a squad that includes 100k plus players Gary Harkins and Leigh Griffiths.

Joe Mbu picked up a pelvic injury on his combeback against Dunfermline last weekend and is unavailable for selection. Jon Robertson is fit again but is short of match practice while Richard Vauls (thigh), Dene Droudge (knee) and Danny Mackay (knee) miss out again.
