Cowdenbeath will welcome Annan Athletic to Central Park for a matchday 20 fixture in Scotland League Two. The last meeting on 30th October 2021 ended in an Annan Athletic 1-0 win. Both sides have met twenty-one times in the most recent seasons. Cowdenbeath has won 3 matches, and Annan Athletic triumphed in 12. Recent outings average 2.38 goals, while both teams score 48% of the time.

Cowdenbeath's last game in the Scotland League Two against Edinburgh City at home ended in a 1-2 loss. Cowdenbeath had plenty of possession, but not enough quality in the final third of the pitch. Cowdenbeath scored in the second half in the 75th minute.

Since the start of the season, Cowdenbeath is more dominant at home. They have two wins out of 10 games on home soil. Although Cowdenbeath is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 20% home clean sheets.

Annan Athletic has picked up 14 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Annan Athletic has collected 2.00 points on average per away game, compared to 1.50 at home.

The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. Cowdenbeath has won just 20% of home games. On average they score 0.90 goals and concede 1.50 per game. Annan Athletic won their previous away game and I expect more of the same. Their away record looks impressive.

The visitors have a better record and I have to back them. Cowdenbeath wins on average 0.80 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against Annan Athletic. My prediction is Annan Athletic to win.

Both sides have plenty of quality in the attack which often results in high-scoring games. I don't think this one on Saturday will be any different. On average, both teams score in 48% of Cowdenbeath's home and Annan Athletic's away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
