COWDEN head for Stenhousmuir on Saturday looking for their first point away from home of 2020.

After looking capable of at least getting a draw at Hampden Park last Saturday, Cowdenbeath ended up leaving an away ground pointless again.

This weekend’s game will not be easy as Stenhousemuir won convincingly at Annan Athletic, on Saturday, and will be looking to move up the table by beating the Blue Brazil.

Saturday’s results see Cowden still in third place, but with Elgin City winning at Brechin and Stirling Albion going to Edinburgh City and collecting three points, the Highlanders are only four points behind them and Stirling, who are at Central Park on February 15, six adrift.

So the Blues really need to start winning away games.

Blues boss Gary Bollan was really frustrated that his team lost at Hampden: “We had as much of the game as Queen’s and a number of good chances but we always seem to struggle to get goals on the road just now.

"On the balance of play we deserved something but our first-half display did us in.

"We did not reach the levels of performance we can and the goal we lost was really sloppy."

He added: “It really is strange how we have been scoring a lot of goals at home but away from home we have been finding it difficult to score regularly.

"Gavin Morrison hit the post just before the break but we probably didn't deserve to get a goal at that stage.

“We know that it is particularly important that we get results away from home and as we go well into the second-half of the season we can’t rely on just winning at home.

“Stenhousemuir are needing points to get away from the danger area and were good winners on Saturday at Annan so they will be very difficult opponents, but we have to look to get goals and get the win that we need.”

The match with the Queen’s saw Kris Renton (pictured) back in action for the first time in two months and it is likely he will start this one, probably joining David Cox in attack.

The midfield will also probably see Graham Taylor come back into the reckoning as could Mikey Herd as the team looks to create more good quality chances on the astro Ochilview pitch.

Ochilview produced one of Cowdenbeath’s two away wins this season with a 3-0 success in September and they will be desperate to repeat that this Saturday.
