COWDENBEATH assistant boss Scott Paterson is remaining grounded after Saturday’s dominant win over Elgin City.

Despite being delighted with the side’s convincing victory, he knows that the Blue Brazil will have to be at their best to overcome whoever their opponents are in the cinch League Two Pyramid Play-off Final.

While Cowden were hammering Elgin at Borough Briggs, manager Maurice Ross was at Bonnyrigg to see the Lowland League champions play the first leg of the semi-final tie and win 3-1 over Highland League winners Fraserburgh.

Cowden’s win over Elgin made it six games undefeated and will face Albion Rovers this coming Saturday, at Central Park, in their final league game.

Paterson wants to see a winning end to what has been a frustrating and disappointing season.

“It has been a good encouraging run and we want to keep it going against Albion Rovers,” he said.

“The performance at Elgin was very, very good. After a first-half where both teams had periods dictating play, the second saw us play some outstanding football and score four really good goals.

“The strikes from Sammy Ompreon and Andrew Barrowman were spectacular finishes and the build-up work for the other goals was excellent.

“The win at Elgin, always a tough place to go, made it six games undefeated and the lads are really buzzing just now.

“We have to concentrate on closing the campaign with another win against Albion Rovers on Saturday which would allow us to go into the play-offs with high confidence levels and that is our aim this weekend.”

Looking at the play-off semi-final the assistant boss said: “Bonnyrigg and Fraserburgh were very useful sides so we will have to be at our best over the two legs to ensure we keep our place in League 2, but things are looking very positive.”

Cowden’s injury and suspension list is reducing with wing-back Fraser Mullen now ready to resume, after being banned for two games, and midfielder or wing-back, Craig Thomson, is now fit to play after some weeks out with an ankle knock. Robbie Buchanan is the same, while goalkeeper Craig McDowall is also ready to be called upon.
