Match Preview

Both player-managers crocked Player-manager Paul Sheerin will miss Arbroath's clash with second-placed Cowdenbeath. The encounter will be the first time Sheerin, who is suffering from a knee injury, has been unable to play since taking the reins. Sheerin is the Second Division leaders' only absentee, though, leaving him confident his side can maintain their perfect home record. He said: "Our home form has been great and this would be a massive game to win before the international break. "Cowdenbeath have a style that is a bit like ours in that they keep attacking, so I do not expect a goalless draw at the end of the 90 minutes. "As long as we score one more than them, I will be pleased especially as Cowdenbeath are on a great run of form at the moment." Cowdenbeath player-manager Colin Cameron is a doubt for the trip. The former Scotland international will make a late call on his own fitness, suggesting he may not decide until Saturday lunchtime. Cameron said: "I have been able to train this week but I am still not quite totally there." Mark Ramsay, Dene Droudge and Danny Mackay have been ruled out and Cameron may make other changes despite the Blue Brazil having won their last three games. The manager added: "I have drawn up two sets of tactics for this match. I will decide which one to use once I see the conditions at Gayfield, where the wind can sometimes be a factor. "I have to decide between being attack minded or being a bit more cautious."

Match Report

Arbroath battle back for draw Josh Falkingham's second-half equaliser salvaged a 1-1 draw for Arbroath at home to Cowdenbeath. The visitors started brightly and almost took the lead through Greg Stewart on seven minutes, but his header went wide. But they did not have to wait long to go in front, Thomas O'Brien firing home from close-range after Marc McKenzie's inswinging corner had caused problems in the Arbroath defence. The home side grabbed their equaliser against the run of the play, Falkingham slotting in on 58 minutes from inside the box following Gavin Swankie's cross. And Stuart Malcolm missed a great opportunity to win the game for Arbroath nine minutes from time, heading straight at Cowdenbeath goalkeeper Thomas Flynn from six yards out.
