World News – GB – Cowdenbeath 0 Hearts 0 LIVE: Betfred Cup Group A clash updates


It’s Cowdenbeath 0 – Hearts at the break at Bayview and it; s been a good half of the Fifer point of view

They got an early penalty cry denied when Craig Barr fell into the box

Hearts dominated the ball from the start, but struggled to create anything clear as their opponents sat deep and limited space behind

The game’s best chance was rejected by Jamie Walker Olly Lee’s free kick was returned on goal by Craig Halkett, but Walker could only return it at close range

A heroic block from Barr then denied Josh Ginnelly after Walker broke free to the right and cut down The loan winger made contact and smashed towards goal, but captain Cowden launched into the way to divert it

Robbie Neilson won’t be very happy with what he saw of his team in the first 45 minutes, and will want to see more after the break

Craig Gordon first came into action after Kris Renton showed good feet to work some room in the box and get a shot, but it’s a comfortable save at the end for the goalkeeper. Hearts

Walker breaks free to the right and pulls the ball back for Ginnelly He takes a touch and crushes it towards the goal, but Barr throws himself in the way of the shot to deny an almost certain first game for Hearts

Brandon chooses Ginnelly’s run behind and he pulls it out for Naismith, who sucks Lee Lee shoots but he takes a touch in his way, slows down and Sinclair is able to rally before he swerves

Hearts should be the lead Lee’s free-kick is greeted by Craig Halkett, who returns on goal for Walker, but he sends his effort over the bar close up Best luck in the game to date

Robbie Neilson has moved his offensive players a bit Josh Ginnelly is now playing as a center forward with Naismith out of him and Jamie Walker wide on the right Hearts looking to use Ginnelly’s pace behind

This time on the other end Jordan Roberts hits the signing and backs down for Naismith He shoots for the first time but hits a defender and Alan Newlands doesn’t have the pretensions in hand

A deep free kick from Cowdenbeath lands on unmarked Ross Pollock at the far post He throws a powerful volley towards goal and it takes a final ditch to block Mihail Popescu to prevent Craig Gordon from making a save Good spell for Cowden in the last ten minutes or so

Jamie Walker recovers possession and leads to Cowdenbeath’s defense, moves the ball to his left foot and hits it, but a challenge takes all the rhythm and harmless trundles up to Sinclair

Cowdenbeath bench screams at a penalty kick as Craig Barr crumbles with Hearts struggling to clear a deep free kick Referee Alan Newlands ignores the claims, although it seemed like a decent scream

Olly Lee swings in a deep screech as Steven Naismith passes underneath and stands as Ross Sinclair tries to claim him but misses and he rushes for a corner Hearts dominate possession in the early stages

Hearts get us on our way to New Bayview, playing in brown and kicking right to left (away from the sea, for those of you unfamiliar with East Fife) Cowden in their traditional blue, white and red

The 18-year-old midfielder went through the SFA Performance School system, attending Broughton High School in Edinburgh before signing a professional contract with the Jambos at local boys’ club Tynecastle

Despite its versatility, McGill has mainly appeared in the middle of the park for the U17s and now on the reserve side

He was one of Andy Halliday’s first subs in the recent friendly victory at Partick Thistle, but starts today alongside Olly Lee for his first competitive appearance in brown

No fans are allowed inside Bayview today, but that doesn’t mean they can’t see the action from outside

A late change to the Hearts bench Ross Stewart retires and his place is taken by Bobby Zlamal

The Blue Brazil have named their team and former Heats youngster Cian Kavanagh is on Gary Bollan’s squad

Cowdenbeath: Ross Sinclair, Ross Pollock, Ross Clarke, Jamie Todd, Craig Barr, Kyle Miller, Graham Taylor, Cian Kavanagh, Kris Renton, Michael Herd, Oliver Hamilton

Submarines: Harvey Swann, David Cox, Craig Easton, Kyle Sneddon, Macallan Whyte, Lewis Owens, Jacob Glass

Hearts: Craig Gordon, Jamie Brandon, Craig Halkett, Mihail Popescu, Aidy White, Scott McGill, Olly Lee, Josh Ginnelly, Jamie Walker, Jordan Roberts, Steven Naismith

In addition to the useful nugget that he can also play in the middle, which will come in handy, he explained how the injury issues at Hull had an invisible effect that people outside the game don’t always understand

Robbie Neilson provided an injury update (don’t worry, that’s good news) ahead of today’s game, and also explained how he knows Stephen Kingsley is a good egg. p>
