Cowdenbeath are ready to welcome East Stirlingshire to Central Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Blue Brazil are clearly on top, having won 46 and lost only 20 of the 83 games.
The previous match played between the two at Central Park was within the last three years, in August 2006, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4-1 thriller, in a Scottish League Cup match.
