Team News: Cowdenbeath
There aren’t many personnel worries, with just the lone fitness concern for the Cowdenbeath gaffer Gary Bollan to contend with thanks to an otherwise robust group of players. Ross Sinclair (Knock) is sidelined.
Team News: Stenhousemuir
Out of a mainly full-strength squad, there’s only the one fitness problem for the Stenhousemuir manager Davie Irons to contend with. Graeme Smith (Knee Injury) misses out for this game.
We’re of the view that Stenhousemuir could well find it tough to break down this Cowdenbeath outfit who we reckon should end up scoring and staying ahead.
Therefore, we predict a narrow 1-0 victory for Cowdenbeath at the end of the 90 minutes.
Hoping for a good game.
