Dean Shiels on Rangers v Cowdenbeath

Dean Shiels looks ahead to RangersScottish Championship clash against Cowdenbeath at Ibrox on Saturday.

Rangers attacking midfielder Dean Shiels has told the club’s official website that the key to winning against Cowdenbeath on Saturday will be matching their “workrate and desire”.

The Gers will be looking to make it two wins out of two in the Scottish Championship with victory over Jimmy Nicholl’s side at Ibrox.

The Glasgow giants will head into the clash on the back of a brilliant 2-0 victory over Hibernian away from home, which has enhanced their chances of a second-placed finish in the league this season.

Cowdenbeath are currently just a place and six points above bottom side Livingston, but Shiels is not taking them lightly.

The 30-year-old is wary of the challenge that Rangers face against Cowden and has highlighted one way in which they can pick up all three points.

“Cowdenbeath have caused us problems, especially at their ground under difficult conditions at times,” Shiels told Rangers’ official website.

“Even at the last game at Ibrox they caused us problems, so we are expecting a difficult game as like all teams they will raise their games when they come.

“We've got to go out there and match their workrate and desire and I can see us going out there and getting the win that we desire.”

Rangers will be favourites to win against Cowdenbeath, but the visitors are fighting against relegation and will indeed make it tough for them.
