Not long now until League Cup action scheduled for Saturday as Cowdenbeath will be taking on Brechin City.
Full predictions, stats & game poll for the Cowdenbeath v Brechin City match are shown here (plus the best game odds).
Cowdenbeath, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 0-1 League Cup victory over Alloa Athletic.
Their latest results really do illustrate the point that much respect should be given to the Cowdenbeath backline. The Blue Brazil have been miserly, seeing the tally of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper during their past six clashes standing at 4.
Since being defeated in their last game at the hands of Raith Rovers in League Cup competition, Brechin City will be hoping to turn things around here.
The numbers tell their own story, and Brechin City have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 12 goals in total. At the back, The City have seen their frailties exposed. It will be interesting to see whether or not that trend will be continued on into this next match.

It looks to us that Cowdenbeath will, in all likelihood, get a lot of shots on goal and make them count.
In contrast, Brechin City could well find it tough to score a goal of their own although we do see them converting at least once as well.
We reckon that it will be a pretty comfortable 3-1 win for Cowdenbeath at the conclusion of the game.
