Preview: East Fife v Cowdenbeath

PostedNovember 4, 2011

It's derby day in the Irn-Bru 2nd Division this weekend as Cowden make the short journey to take on East Fife in arguably Scotland's game of the day.

Despite last Saturday's loss at Brechin, the Blue Brazil go into the game as league leaders and will face the Division's form side, with a four game winning run propelling East Fife from bottom to 4th top.

After the disappointing loss to Brechin City last week Cowden have lost their outright lead at the top of the table but still proudly sit first after an impressive first quarter+.. Player/manager Colin Cameron could return from injury for this one along with Kal Naismith. David Cowan is a doubt due to an ankle injury.

East Fife have been on a superb run lately which included a cup run to the quarter finals of the league cup before losing to Kilmarnock. East Fife are on a run of 4 league wins, scoring 11 goals in the process while we have only 2 wins in our last 4 and neither were away from home. In fact its the 17th of September since we last won away from home in a 4-0 win against Dumbarton. East Fife have 10 points out of 15 at home while we sit with 8 points out of 18 away from home.

Spookily it was 5 years ago that Cowden played East Fife on the same date and won 3-1 at Central Park and it was the next match between the 2 sides which was the last time East Fife defeated us. In the 6 games after Cowden have won 4 and drawn 2 of those matches. Our only other match on this date in recent times saw a 3-0 win over Arbroath be recorded. Clearly a good date for us!

Match of the day fact of the week: - Cowden sit 39th in the average attendance ranking in Scotland with only 361 people attending on average. East Fife sit 27th with 609 on average.
