Cove Rangers boss John Sheran has been given a boost ahead of their second leg of the League Two play-off final with the news that Jonny Smith is fit.
The attacker has recovered from a groin injury ahead of tomorrow’s clash with Cowdenbeath at Central Park.
Sheran said: “Dean Lawrie is back from offshore and Jonny Smith trained fully on Wednesday night so he’s back.
“All the people involved last Saturday are all right and Ryan Strachan did 70% of the training so he has an outside chance of being fit.”
Cove were the better team in the goalless first leg and Sheran, pictured, admits they have a fantastic opportunity to become the first Highland League team to gain promotion through the play-offs.
He added: “When you’re trying to do something that has not been done before it adds an excitement and extra buzz to the event. “It is a fantastic opportunity that we’ve got to try to take advantage of.
“Everybody associated with Cove has had this ambition for a number of years.
“You don’t want to get too carried away, but it’s going to be a big thing and we need to make sure we’re ready on the day to hit the levels we need to hit.
“I don’t believe that Cowdenbeath will be at the level they were at last week, we expect them to be better.
“We’ll need to raise our performance again, but we can take the confidence that we were the better team last week and we’ll need to do the same this week.”
