Brechin City 1 - 0 Cowdenbeath

Saturday 29th October 2011
C King (53)

King reigns supreme for Brechin

Charlie King's fifth goal of the season earned Brechin a surprise 1-0 win over table-topping Cowdenbeath.

Brechin came in to fixture in ninth place in the Scottish Second Division table, without a win in six games, and almost fell behind in the 40th minute.

Jon Robertson converted Scott Linton's inswinging corner with a left-footed finish but his effort was disallowed by referee Brian Colvin.

Brechin then took the lead eight minutes after half-time when King found space inside the Cowdenbeath penalty area before placing a precise left-footed finish past Cowdenbeath goalkeeper Thomas Flynn.

The hosts had an opportunity to double their lead in the 68th minute but Craig Molloy was unable to keep his drilled right-footed strike on target.

Blue Brazil set for double boost

Jim Lister comes back into the reckoning for Brechin ahead of the visit of league leaders Cowdenbeath.

The striker is available again after suspension but recent signing Bryan Hodge begins a ban.

Gerry McLachlan and Derek Carcary look set to miss out due to knee injuries and Gary Fusco a doubt because of a knock.

City are looking for a first victory in seven matches and Glebe Park boss Jim Weir said: "I am not sure what line up to go for as yet as all the players are working really hard and do not deserve to miss out.

"However, Jim Lister can be a real threat and is definitely in my thoughts for starting. We need to find a goal or two to get us winning again and increase the confidence around the team."

Cowdenbeath welcome back defender Dean Brett and midfielder Mark Ramsay.

Player-manager Colin Cameron looks set to include himself after a hamstring injury but Kenny Adamson is a doubt with a foot problem.

Cameron faces a dilemma about who to open up with in attack.

He said: "Lewis Coult came on as a substitute last weekend against Forfar and changed the game. He scored instantly and he could not have done any more for me to seriously consider starting with him in this one.

"Brechin have good players and are in a bit of a false position so we have to ensure it does not all click together for them against us."
