League Two Play-Off Second Leg – Berwick Rangers v Cove Rangers

The ‘Gers play one of the most important games in their history on Saturday as we welcome Cove Rangers to Shielfield Park for the second leg of the promotion/relegation play-off in the 2018/2019 campaign.

Cove have the advantage having triumphed 4-0 in their home leg last weekend. Goals from Sam Burnett, Mitch Megginson, Jamie Masson and Jordon Brown gave the Highland League champions a comfortable victory last Saturday. It is hoped Jordan Orru and Robert Wilson will have recovered from injuries picked up in the game.

The crowd was just under 2,000 last Saturday and another bumper crowd is expected this weekend.


John McKendrick will be the referee on Saturday. Daniel McFarlane and John McCrossan will be running the lines.
