Cowdenbeath will be the visitors at Galabank on Saturday for the League Two clash with home team Annan Athletic.
Our Annan Athletic v Cowdenbeath predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below - plus the latest betting odds.
Annan Athletic will want to continue from where they left off last time out with the 0-3 League Two success versus Brechin City.
The only scorer from Annan Athletic was Nathan Flanagan (81').
Their more recent scorelines highlight the fact that there has been much resilience in the Annan Athletic rearguard. Galabankies have been miserly, resulting in the number of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper over the course of their last 6 matches standing at 4.
Looking at the pre-match facts, Annan Athletic:
- are unbeaten in the league by Cowdenbeath in their previous 3 matches.
- are undefeated in their previous 3 home league matches.
Following on from being beaten in their last game against Brechin City in League Two competition, Cowdenbeath will be hoping to turn things around here.
Chris McKee (9') and Bobby Barr (55') scored for Brechin City.
The strike force from Cowdenbeath have suffered from a lack of goals over their last 6 clashes, netting the poor return of only 4. In those fixtures, The Blue Brazil have also seen the overall goal tally against them equal 7. That aside, we’ll just have to find out whether that pattern will be replicated in this game.
Taking a look at their past results, Cowdenbeath:
- have not won against Annan Athletic in games played away from home for the previous 4 league matches. Not good at all.
- have not lost to Annan Athletic in away games against them for the last 2 matches in the league.
- are undefeated in their last 3 away league matches.
Head to head
If we look at their past head to head duels going back to 24/08/2019, both clubs have shared the honours with Annan Athletic winning 2 of those games, Cowdenbeath 2 and 2 being draws in normal time.
In all, 12 goals were shared by the two clubs in these games, with 6 from Galabankies and 6 netted by The Blue Brazil. That’s an average goals per game of 2.
The previous league fixture between the two was League Two match day 11 on 20/03/2021 which ended up with the score at Annan Athletic 0-0 Cowdenbeath.
The referee was Gavin Ross.
Team News: Annan Athletic
Annan Athletic manager Peter Murphy will be thankful to have no fitness worries at all coming into this clash with a fully healthy group available to choose from.
Team News: Cowdenbeath
Owing to an otherwise available group of players, there is just a single fitness problem for the Cowdenbeath manager Gary Bollan to contend with. Ross Clarke (Ankle Surgery) misses out for this game.
We think that Cowdenbeath might well have a job on their hands to score against this Annan Athletic lineup who we think will be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
We’re therefore expecting a narrow 1-0 win for Annan Athletic at the end of the match.
We’ll see what happens.
