After the Irn-Bru cup exit in midweek the ‘Gers travel to Central Park for an enticing league clash against Cowdenbeath, with the game kicking off at 3pm.
Robbie Horn and the lads will be looking for a continuation of recent form against the Blue Brazil as last seasons encounters provided some of the best entertainment of the season, from the Micheal McKenna viral penalty to the impressive 1-3 victory away from home that almost cemented Berwick’s League Two status at the time.
Cowdenbeath had a season to forget in 2017/18, finishing bottom of the pile and avoiding relegation through the play-offs after some end of season improvement.
Things haven’t dramatically improved since the summer recruitment either with defeats in both league games to date.
The sides sit 7th and 8th respectively in the early League Two table.
After some changes for the cup clash in the week it will be interesting to see the line-up selected for this league game. Recent double signings, Jack Ogilvie and John Neil, will be in the squad and expected to make their league debuts for the club. Both players have experience in a variety of positions so enhance the depth of the squad.
Gary Bollan will be looking for his side to pick up their first points of the season. For them to do so former Berwick striker Jordyn Sheerin will be looking to add to his strike in the home defeat last week. It is expected that Jason Talbot will once again miss out but Jamie Pyper is expected to be fit. Former Berwick captain Pat Scullion joined the Fifers in the summer but has yet to feature in league action.
