The ‘Gers are at home to 6th placed Queen’s Park on Saturday with 4 huge games remaining in the 2018/19 season.

The visitors arrive in good form with no defeats in their last 5 league outings and having beaten Berwick on 3 previous occasions this season.

Mark Roberts and his in-form side did Berwick a favour with a 0-4 victory at 9th placed Albion Rovers last weekend.

Johnny Harvey is looking for a reaction to the defeat at Annan last time out and has stressed how important the backing of supporters and the first goal is in these nervy encounters.

History

The two sides share a long history of league battles. Saturday will represent the 140th league meeting between the two sides. Berwick will be looking for their 54th victory and arguably the most important to date.

Berwick News

Johnny Harvey has a few selection decisions to make after the second half collapse at Annan. Changes could be expected.

Harvey has urged every supporter to get to Shielfield on Saturday and get behind the boys. The manager believes League status can be achieved with our loyal supporters behind us.

Queen’s Park News
