well it’s a relatively early start for this one. I’ll leave the house around 9am and pick up my dad and head to Berwick. I’ve a few things to attend to when we get there, fix a broken computer, drop off a card,
and of course lunch! Then I’m operating one of the turnstiles for the game.
I’ve got no idea how this game will pan out. Cowdenbeath have beaten us 3 times already this season ,4-0, 3-0 and 2-0 if I recall. We can take a bit of hope from our game midweek against Edinburgh City. We lost that one 1-0 to a penalty. I’m not convinced that we are capable of a result against Cowdenbeath though. Of course I want us to win but I’m realistic, our form has been poor. Still good luck to the guys and let’s hope for the best.
well we arrived and I went about my tasks. Computer repaired and tested, Birthday card dropped off for my nephew and lunch devoured. Lunch was Fish and chips (me) and sausage and chips (dad) from the van at Shielfield. Next stop turnstile duty.
Well I got my bum in the seat shortly after kickoff, I had to wait for stragglers that turn up late to the turnstile. I had a view of the pitch to so I didn’t miss any of the action. The biggest talking point was that Clyde fielded an ineligible player in February. Both games he played in have had the opposition teams awarded a 3-0 win. Those teams are Queens Park and Albion Rovers. The gap is back to 4 points from the relegation spot between Berwick and Albion Rovers before a ball is even kicked....
So with that bombshell to deal with it was time to tackle Cowdenbeath. I’m somewhat losing the desire to write these blogs. We were lucky today, the team were poor again despite scoring a good goal. We simply don’t seem to be able to just get the passing and positioning right. A red card picked up for a dangerous tackle completed the day. It’s frustrating because it’s the simple things again that we are losing out on. We are desperate for things to click into place but the clock is ticking away.
But it was a valuable point today especially as Albion Rovers picked up 3 points. The gap is now 2 points, worrisome times ahead. Let’s hope the team can hold on to the end of the campaign and we can secure our league status for next season. I’ll not mange the midweek game at home against Queens Park. I will be down for the game next Saturday against Peterhead.
