Edinburgh City vs Cowdenbeath
Scottish League Two action sees the bottom two clubs in Scottish league football meet face-to-face for the third time this season. On this occasion Edinburgh City play host to Cowdenbeath in Edinburgh.
This is Edinburgh's second season in the Scottish football league and it's fair to say they have struggled. Last season they weren't far off the relegation play-off spot, otherwise known as last place, and this season they currently sit in 9th place, 2nd from bottom. Their form of late though hasn't been the form a side sat second from bottom. In the last 10 games they sit in 5th position, as they do in the last 5 games and this has largely been helped by their recent home results. The Edinburgh side have won 3 of their last 5 home games and managed a cool 10 goals during those wins, equally as impressive was the 0-0 draw against the league's best side, Peterhead. Their other game in the 5 game sequence was a 2-0 loss to promotion chasing Montrose.
Scott Shepherd is becoming their go to guy for goals and he has 7 in his 14 appearances for the club this season including the opener in their recent 3-2 win over Annan Athletic.
Cowdenbeath, the side who ended up in the relegation play-off spot last season are at the foot of the table again. The Blue Brazil (not a joke) are currently a huge 15 points off safety after just 1 win in their 25 league games. It doesn't get much better when you dig deeper into their stats as away from home they are winless and have only scored in 5 of their 13 games on the road.
This game will also be their first game in around a month due to the bad weather in Scotland and a lack of match practice could go against them as much as for them. Their opponents have played twice since their last match, winning both. Edinburgh certainly have the momentum in this big bottom of the table clash.
The clubs have met twice already in the league with the first game in Edinburgh ending in a 0-0 draw before Edinburgh took the points on the road winning 2-0.
A safer bet, if wanted, would be Edinburgh on the -0.25 Asian Handicap.This ensures half a refund on the draw.
