Preparations for the League Season 

Cowdenbeath have played more games than Dunfermline in the build up for the kick off to the 2012-13 league season. While pre season is all about getting up to match fitness both clubs experienced reversals in cup competitions.  Forfar Athletic came back from 2-1 down to defeat the Pars 3-2 in the Ramsden Cup while Cowdenbeath were knocked out by Division Three club, Montrose in last Saturday`s Scottish Communities League Cup.

Now its a matter of finding out whether its Jim Jefferies` team or Colin Cameron`s team that is most ready for the First Division.
