COWDEN take on Berwick Rangers this Saturday and it is a home game which they really must look to win.
Berwick have had a strange start with a good opening day win over Clyde but have lost their last three games and are sitting on three points, one behind the Blues.
The narrow defeat at Montrose was something that manager Billy Brown had hoped to avoid, but Cowden losing a goal in 19 minutes gave the Gable Endies something to defend although Cowdenbeath had a couple of good chances and they did hit the woodwork.
Montrose certainly look one of the better teams in League 2 this season so losing so narrowly to them, while disappointing, had many plus points. Again the defence played really well and kept tabs on the dangerous Montrose front men while the Blue Brazil looked dangerous at times going forward and Brad Smith was unlucky not to score.
However, Cowden have to look to go out and beat Berwick at Central Park on Saturday. Said Mr Brown: “I felt we did not really do enough in the first period but after the interval we created some good chances and probably deserved something. We lost Fraser Mullen after about 20 odd minutes but Kyle Miller went on and did well.
“It was a shame we could not get that all important goal but again the lads gave everything for the jersey and kept working hard right to the last kick.”
Mr Brown is aware that building up points at home is an important factor in doing well in the table and he is looking for his team to search for three points this Saturday although he pointed out that there is little between the teams in the division. He said: “We have played three games now and every one of them has been really tight so this weekend’s match will be in exactly the same line with it being very even.
“I feel we have a good young squad with a lot of exciting talent and our aim has to be to find a good level of consistency.
 “Berwick will be tough opposition but if we can get the first goal, like against Edinburgh City, we can get the win we want.”
A win over Berwick would allow them to get a bit of light between themselves and the sides in the lower reaches of the table.
Midfielder Fraser Mullen is nursing a rib injury from the Montrose game and is unlikely to be fit for the visit of Berwick but Kyle Miller slotted in at Links Park and can be expected to start against the Wee Rangers. Ryan Connelly is another likely starter.
