TRANENT football ace Dean Brett admits it is "embarrassing" to see his Cowdenbeath side languishing at the foot of the League Two table.

Brett was part of the side beaten 1-0 at Berwick Rangers on Saturday, with former Musselburgh Athletic man Steven Thomson scoring the decisive goal six minutes from time.

Experienced right-back Brett, who has endured back-to-back relegations with the club, said the Fifers' performance was a low point in their season.

He told Courier Sport: "It was the worst we have played [all season] against Berwick and they fully deserved it.

"It seems like we go one step forward and two steps back this season with our performances."

Despite defeat, and being rooted to the foot of the table, the Tranent ace is confident they will avoid the drop.

He has even set his team-mates the challenge of reaching the promotion play-offs, with Cowden currently only six points behind Annan Athletic, who occupy fourth place.

The 24-year-old added: "I am 100 per cent confident we will stay up – there's no way we are the worst team in the league.

"It is very tight until the play-off places [to go up] so I'm still aiming for fourth place and so should everyone at the club."

He is also focused on this weekend's match with Edinburgh City, which could see Brett's side move off the bottom spot.

"It's disappointing and embarrassing to be bottom but we just need to accept it and hopefully we won't be there after this week."

While Brett is confident the Blue Brazil will avoid the drop, he refused to be drawn on his own future.

He said: "I've not had a think about what I'm doing next season - I'm just hoping for the team to start playing well more consistently and then I'll see at the start of the season.

"Cowden have done great by me all these years and I'd love to stay, but I just need to see what other options there are.

"I turned down a move last summer, so it's hard to say just now."
