Match Preview v Edinburgh City (A) - 120823

We have the first of our away games of the league one campaign tomorrow when we head to the capital to face Edinburgh City. Like ourselves, tomorrow’s hosts lost their opening day fixture as they went down 1-0 away at Stirling Albion.

Our record against them last season was five wins from five. Back to back games in the league and cup in September resulted in a 4-1 and 4-0 win at Palmerston while Ruari Paton scored the only goal of the game in the one other game in Dumfries in February. In the matches at Meadowbank, Paton, Lewis Gibson and Lee Connelly all scored in a 3-0 victory in November before we secured three points with a 3-1 win during our final meeting of the season in March. Under the lights that Friday night, Ruari opened the scoring before Connor Murray and Paul McKay were also on target.

With Hibs still holding on to Murray Johnson a bit longer for their European tie against Luzern, Charlie Cowie has again been recalled from Gretna for the match.

Manager Marvin Bartley said “There were a lot of things that we needed to look at from last week’s game against Alloa. The goals we conceded and the standards we produced in the first half especially were far from acceptable. We have gone through it as a group this week and I will be looking for them to implement the plans we have been working on.

The results against Edinburgh we’re all positive last season but those games are in the past and mean nothing now. We have to go there and be at our best to have a chance of putting points on the board”.
