Two goals by Darren Lavery, who took his tally for the club to 50 in the process, saw Berwick record a comfortable win over Clyde at Broadwood.

The victory means Rangers have now leapfrogged Annan into fourth place with a two-point lead and a game in hand in the race for the play-offs.

Lavery struck after 66 and 82 minutes with Stevie Notman netting in between on 75 minutes.

Berwick got off to a slow start and Clyde had the better of the early chances. Scott Durie pulled a shot wide after 12 minutes and Scott McManus shot straight at Billy Bald two minutes later.

Gradually Berwick started to claw their way back into the match and central defender Kerr Young headed over from a corner. Andy Russell had a shot blocked then Stevie Notman saw a header well saved by Alan Martin.

As Rangers pressed, Scott Maxwell shot over, and Paul Willis had a shot saved.

The visitors finished the half with a flourish; Lee Currie had a shot saved from outside the box whilst Russell was just off target with another effort.

Berwick started the second half brightest with Currie again having a shot from distance saved by Martin, whilst Jonny Fairbairn headed over following a corner.

McManus and McDougall pulled shots wide for the home side and both teams made substitutions in an attempt to change the game.

The breakthrough came on 66 minutes when Lavery netted from close range after Willis crossed low to the back post for the striker to tap in.

Willis the shot over before Notman doubled Rangers’ advantage on 76 minutes. Fairbairn headed goalward from a Willis corner and the ball deflected off Notman into the net,

This seemed to lift Berwick and within minutes subs Ross Gray and Craig Dargo both went close before Lavery made it three on 82 minutes with a well-struck 18-yarder to send the small, but vocal away following into raptures.

With almost the last kick of the game substitute David Gold saw Martin save his shot from the right.
