Match Preview: Cowdenbeath v Stirling Albion

PostedSeptember 25, 2009

League leaders Stirling Albion come to town this weekend and will face a Blue Brazil side that is unbeaten in the last four league games.

Cowden continued their good form last Saturday with a comprehensive 3-0 win away at Dumbarton as Danny Lennon's side have quickly adapted to life in the 2nd Division. Stirling Albion are one of the favourites for the league title though and will will provide a stern test for the home side.

"I'm really looking forward to the game and coming up against Allan Moore and his team", said Lennon.

"We are on a good run at the moment but I don't look back the and focus is always very much on the next game. We enjoyed last Saturday after the win over Dumbarton but our thoughts almost immediately switched to this weekends game and the difficult challenge posed by Stirling Albion.

"The team spirit is fantastic and the boys are playing for each other and getting their rewards. The level of performance has been very pleasing and we will be looking to keep up the momentum on Saturday. We set out to win every game and tomorrow will be no different."

Stirling Albion have made a strong start to the season and moved to the top of the league last Saturday after a convincing 3-0 home win over East Fife. The Binos will be a threat up front with former Cowden striker David McKenna an ex-Dundonald Bluebell hitman Martin Grehan in fine form. It will be something of a Dundonald reunion for Grehan coming up against former Bluebell team mates Paul McQuade and Mark Ramsay.

McQuade missed the trip to the Strathclyde Homes Stadium last weekend with an ankle injury but played over an hour for the reserves on Tuesday night and comes back into contention. Jay Shields also featured for the reserves as he builds up match fitness while John Dempster has made good progress following a groin injury but faces a late fitness test. However, Mark Baxter is still unavailable after injuring his shoulder at work while Darren McGregor will once again miss out. The defender has fully recovered from his knee injury but has been troubled by a chest infection and visited hospital this week for tests.
