COWDEN boss Gary Bollan was delighted with the way his team tackled the challenge of making it three wins in a row.

And now he wants them to make it four straight wins when they head for Annan this Saturday.

As expected it was a really tough game with Stirling Albion, but Cowden defended superbly throughout the game and created some good chances.

However, the challenge of fourth top Annan will be a tougher ask but the manager feels his men, who have already won at Galabank this season, can get a win that could take the team into sixth place.

Queen’s Park are three points ahead of Cowden’s 40 but they face title chasing Clyde at Broadwood, so it is going to be tough for them and maybe harder than Cowdenbeath’s task at Annan.

The Athletic are already in the promotion play-offs but they will have an eye on winning their last two games to put pressure on third top Edinburgh City who are five ahead.

However, Mr Bollan was delighted to see the Blue Brazil hit 40 points with the win at Forthbank and he is wanting no let-up in the last two games.

He said: “It was a really hard game but the lads kept at it all the way through and we deserved to take the win.

“That is three in a row but we have two games to go and these are there to be won and that is our aim.

“If we could make sixth place that would be an outstanding improvement on last season but we know that facing Annan and Clyde will really test us.

"David Cox has scored four in four games and hopefully he can maintain that form until the end of the season."

The manager may be without defender/midfielder Robbie Deas at Annan after he failed to re-appear for the second period at Stirling. Harvey Swann will continue on the left hand side if the big man fails to make it.

There were one or two niggling knocks but the team will show few changes if any.
