COWDEN boss Gary Bollan is calling on his team to make it three wins in a row when Elgin City come to Central Park on Saturday.

Cowdenbeath’s first away win of the season saw the Blue Brazil stay in seventh spot in Ladbrokes League 2 but move closer to the top five clubs and if they beat City on Saturday they will close to two points on the fifth top Highlanders.

The Blues have not rattled together three successive wins for some seasons but the way the team is playing just now they will fancy their chances this Saturday.

Manager Gary Bollan was really happy with the way his team played and also kept their cool as Berwick lost their discipline.

He said: “We had to start well and we did just that and started to pose Berwick quite a lot of problems.

“They started to struggle and when their player was red carded we got the two goals which was just what we needed.

“In the second-half the Berwick were reduced to eight men but we used our advantage to ensure we got the win we came for.

“We are in to double figures now in terms of points but we have to look to push on now and keep picking them up on an almost weekly basis.”

The manager is aware that by winning the next two games his team could move into a position to challenge for the top half of the table and that is dearly what he wants to see.

He added: “Consistency is what we are seeking and if we keep the levels of concentration up which we saw both against Clyde and Berwick we can achieve that.

“First up is Elgin and we know from the game a couple of weeks ago up there that they are a good team with dangerous attackers so our concentration has to be good this weekend.

“We have been carrying a real threat at the other end and that has to be maintained if we want to get the results that can propel us up the table.”

Cowdenbeath are sitting on 11 points with Elgin on 16 but perhaps just as important is that the bottom two, Albion Rovers are on four and Berwick on six, so by keeping picking up points the team will distance themselves well out of any play-offs of the wrong kind this season.

And a really good run could bring ideas alive of promotion play-offs, but that is a little way off yet.

So Cowden will have ‘keeper Dave McGurn back this week after his one match ban for his dismissal at Elgin and he will go straight back into the team.

Elsewhere there will be few changes with Kris Renton, again having a good 90 minutes at Berwick so Jordyn Sheerin might have to wait to get his number nine top back, while Gary Fraser may also have to settle for a seat on the bench with Blair Malcolm and Kyle Miller in form the past two weeks.
