But will Brechin City get beat as well? Cowdenbeath will be creating a carnival atmosphere for the second leg of their play-off semi-final against Brechin City on Saturday. They have arranged to have a samba band to entertain the Central Park fans in between a feast of football. The first leg ended in a 2-2 draw after the Blue Brazil were pegged back from holding 2-0 lead. The fun will start at 12:00 with children from 13 primary schools involved in a  penalty kick competition. The prize for the winning school is a full-set of the 2011/12 Umbro Cowdenbeath home kit which has been donated by Cowdenbeath director Neil Fentie. The Samba band will then take centre stage with a dance troupe and cheerleaders adding to the excitement. Then band will return with the sounds of Brazil at half time along with an appearance from the Cowdenbeath U'14 team who will be taking part in a half-way line, 10 seconds to score challenge. A spokesperson for the club said: "Add all this to the drama of the Play-Offs and there is only one place to be on Saturday afternoon! Get along to Central Park and get behind the Blue Brazil."
