ON the face of it a trip to face the bottom side in Ladbrokes League 2 should provide Cowdenbeath an ideal chance to end their run of six games without a win.

However, life at Albion Rovers has changed in recent weeks and after seemingly been cast to finish bottom and in the relegation play-offs the Coatbridge men are now only two points behind second bottom Berwick Rangers and if they were to win tonight would get off the foot of the table for the first time this year.

A combination of back to back wins and being awarded three points for Clyde playing an ineligible player against them has rejuvenated their campaign so Cowden will have to play better than they did in Saturday's goalless draw with Queen's Park to win this one.

But manager Gary Bollan is wanting a strong finish to the Blue Brazil campaign and he said: "The opening quarter of Saturday's game was completely unacceptable.

"There was no pattern and we aimlessly gave the ball away. We were much better in the second-half but we need 90 minutes of improvement tonight for this will be a very stern test.

"We have our own agenda for we want to finish at worst in the top six but to do that we have to win at least four games and the players have been made very aware of what is needed."

The manager may bring striker Jordan Allan back in to join David Cox and Kris Renton in attack as he seeks the first of the wins he wants.

Aaron Lennox will be back with the squad after his emergency week back at Partick Thistle but Dave McGurn is certain to hold on to the number 1 shirt after a fine game on Saturday.
