Cowdenbeath vs Hearts Match Preview
Cowdenbeath must have been dreading being drawn against Hearts in the 2019-20 Scottish League Cup given their recent record against the Edinburgh club.
As the stats above reveal, more often than not in the last half-dozen meetings between these clubs Cowdenbeath have been on the receiving end of a hiding from the Jam Tarts.
But at least the club nicknamed the Blue Brazil do not have to travel to Hearts’ home in the capital, where they have conceded a whopping 25 goals in their last four visits including a 10-0 mauling in February 2015!
That was when Cowdenbeath had worked their way up to the second tier of Scottish football, but they have subsequently fallen back down to the league basement – although they ended last season strongly with four wins out of five.
However, it is what happens this term that counts now, this being the second Group A match in the League Cup for both of these teams with Hearts and Dundee United, who met in the opening fixture of the Scottish campaign on Friday, the favourites to advance from this pool.
Home advantage is important here for Cowdenbeath regarding their prospects of giving Hearts a test, but we still expect Craig Levein’s top-flight side to be comfortably too good.
