Match Preview

Linton returns but Cameron out Irn-Bru Second Division leaders Cowdenbeath are looking to return to winning ways after two draws by seeing off visitors Brechin City. However, they will need to do so without player/manager Colin Cameron who remains out with a medial ligament injury. Scott Linton returns from suspension to bolster a home defence that will be missing hamstring injury victim David Cowan and Thomas O'Brien who is still sidelined with a broken foot. Cameron's playing assistant Lee Makel is also unavailable with a chest infection and the Blue Brazil boss said: "We want to pick up three points again after two away draws. Our home record has been good but Brechin have lost only one game in nine and that shows you that we need to play well to do so." Brechin City have mounting problems for their trip to face the leaders. Gerry McLauchlan, Derek Carcary and Charlie King remain sidelined and Glebe Park boss Jim Weir could be without another six players. David McClune, Euan Moyes, Scott Buist, Mick Dunlop, Jim Lister and Paul McManus all face Saturday morning fitness tests. "There is no way I can see all six of them making it and at best I would settle for having half of them available for selection," said Weir. "We have been doing well recently and are inching our way towards the play-offs and, regardless of injuries, I want that to continue. "We have won our last two games and winning a third with the challenges we face would be great."

Match Report

Lyle digs deep for Miners Derek Lyle's last-minute goal earned Cowdenbeath a priceless three points from a 1-0 win over Brechin. City goalkeeper Craig Nelson denied Greg Stewart's left-footed drive midway through the first half before Rory McKenzie fired over at the other end seven minutes before half time. Stewart again went close after the restart but headed Dean Brett's centre wide of the left-hand post from 12 yards with 20 minutes remaining. Jon Robertson almost made the breakthrough for the Blue Brazil in the 86th minute but his header from Liam Cusack's corner cannoned back off a post. And just as Brechin looked to have hung on for a point, Lyle popped up in the right place at the right time to slam Stewart's cross into the roof of the net.
