Albion Rovers vs Berwick Rangers – Match Preview

After picking up 8 out of a possible 12 available points in their previous four games, the ‘Gers are on somewhat of a mini-revival, however tomorrow’s result at to Albion Rovers will undoubtedly go a long way as to helping distinguish whether said revival has came too late to build momentum towards stealing 4th place.

Berwick team news:

The ‘Gers head in to tomorrow’s trip to Cliftonhill with the same injury problems that have troubled the squad over the past few weeks; although they are boosted by the arrival of Partick Thistle striker Chris Dillon.

A highly-rated prospect at Firhill, Dillon will provide competition for places up front, helping to make up for the absence of striker Darren Lavery. The Partick man may find it difficult to walk straight into the line-up however, with Blair Henderson’s five goals in eight league games appearing to show a clinical edge which the ‘Gers have perhaps somewhat lacked previously.

Billy Bald, Steven Notman and Ross Drummond remain out, while Darren Lavery & Stephen Tulloch are also unlikely to make it.

After conceeding three in midweek action, boss Colin Cameron may be tempted to hand Neil Martyniuk his debut in defence, although as we go head to head with the side who look likely to go on to win the league championship, he may also be tempted to stick with a more experienced back line.

Albion Rovers team news:

The ‘Gers can go into tommorow’s clash with some confidence having already won one key clash at Cliftonhill earlier in the season during our Scottish Cup run. However, Albion will be out for revenge, and when coupled with their 3-0 defeat to Elgin City last time out, manager Darren Young will be demanding a response as the Coatbridge side look to continue their quest for league glory.

Albion appear to be at full-strength for the clash, and as their captain Michael Dunlop has been vocal in today’s press about bouncing back, it looks as though their squad will be up for a fight.
