Cameron: ‘Consistency is key’

Berwick boss Colin Cameron is hoping 2015 can bring about some more consistent performances from his side with a view to cementing a top four spot over the coming weeks.

The Gers comfortably overcame East Stirlingshire 3-0 at Shielfield Park on Saturday with goals from Scott Maxwell, Steven Notman and Ross Drummond and sit just one point behind fourth-placed Annan with a game in hand and some favourable fixtures ahead.

Speaking after the win, Cameron said: “It’s a good start to the year. I said to the players our problem this season has been putting performances like that together on a regular basis and when we do put it together that’s what happens.

“We managed another clean sheet too (four in last five games) and as long as we’re getting those we’re putting ourselves in a great position to be winning games.

“We’ve got Clyde next week, who look to have been unlucky not to win against Queen’s Park and it gives us an opportunity to get ourselves into fourth place and try and cement that position down.”

The turn of the year also brings about the opening of the January transfer window and the manager has already been busy, transfer-listing Scott Dalziel and Paul Currie while admitting he’d like to tie on-loan Dunfermline man Drummond down on a more permanent basis.

He said: “The chairman’s been really good to me and given me a decent budget so if I’m going to be bringing any players in I need some space in the squad for that. I don’t think we need to make that many changes because you saw the quality that was out there today but a couple of new faces would freshen things up.

“We’re in talks with Ross about trying to sort out something permanent with him. I think he showed how good he was last season where he gained a lot of confidence with us. He’s repeated that so far this season and scored a really good goal with his right foot.”
