The ‘Gers entertain 8th placed Queen’s Park this evening at Shielfield Park, with the League Two encounter kicking off at 7.45pm.
This is the second of 3 home games in a week for Johnny Harvey and the boys as the need for points has dramatically increased following a victory for Albion Rovers at the weekend, to follow on from them being awarded another 3 points last week due to sanctions imposed on Clyde FC for fielding an illegible player.
The gap at the bottom is now down to 2 points with this fixture being Berwick’s game in hand.
Mark Robert’s and his Queen’s Park side come into the clash with just 1 win in their last 5 league games. The away side lost 2-0 away to Edinburgh City at the weekend.
The two teams have a rich history with 138 league meetings to date in Scottish football. This is the 68th meeting in Berwick with the ‘Gers boasting 30 victories to date.
This is the first game between the two in Berwick this season with Queen’s Park winning the previous two this campaign.
Declan O’Kane was sent-off at the weekend. Calum Adamson will be looking to add to his goal from the weekend and Matthew Know has returned to training with the team. Jordan Orru, Ouzy See and goalkeeper Kyle Allison remain the only longer term absentees for Harvey.
