THE Blue Brazil are looking to bounce back this Saturday after losing their first two Lowland League clashes.

After the opening day disappointment of defeat to Celtic B, and Tuesday's home defeat to Open Goal Broomhill, it is Gala Fairydean up next.

They will arrive at Central Park on Saturday after beating Civil Service Strollers 3-1 on Tuesday night.

Assistant manager Colin Jack was frustrated by the way things panned out for Cowdenbeath against Celtic B in the league opener, and is hopeful the learning experience will help the young squad as the season progresses.

He reflected: "We opened the game well and had two good chances to go ahead, then came the sending off.

“I have looked at the video coverage of the game and Jack Garrad was, I feel, very unlucky to be sent off as our goalkeeper and another defender were between the attacker and the goals when the challenge occurrd and there was limited contact between Jack and the player.

“It put is on the back foot and it was hard to stay in the game when they got the first goal, but the lads kept working hard and it was a good finish by Chris Aikamhenze, but playing a man short for such a long time was too much of a hurdle to overcome.”

He added: “We received excellent backing from our fans at Saturday’s game and they appreciated the hard work the team put into the game in difficult circumstances, and clearly, we want to do win as many of our home games as we can.

“Gala will be out to pose us problems, and they have some experienced players, but this is all part of the lads’ learning experience and we will be going all out for victory by working very hard and look to get the opening goal in the match, for that can make such a difference."
