Match Preview : Berwick Rangers v Albion Rovers – Ladbrokes League Two

The final home game of the regular League Two season is this Saturday, with the ‘Gers hosting Albion Rovers with a 3pm kick-off.

This is one of the most important games in the clubs history as we look to take 3 points to close the gap on the visitors and take the relegation battle to the final weekend of the season.

Albion have gone past Berwick in the table in recent weeks with a good run of form coinciding with the controversial points award from the Clyde game. Albion netted an impressive 3-2 victory over promotion chasing Edinburgh City last Saturday which saw them move 5 points clear of Berwick in the table, leaving them needing a point from their final two games to finish 9th in the table and avoid the play-offs.


Johnny Harvey and the boys can take heart from the previous meetings this season that have seen Berwick take 7 points from 3 games, including a 5-3 thriller early in the season at Cliftonhill.

History is also on the side of the home team as this will be the 67th meeting in Berwick between the two. The ‘Gers have 31 wins to date, compared to 17 for Albion Rovers.

Johnny Harvey knows that only a win will be good enough and has called for all supporters to get behind the side and be the 12th man on Saturday. Kyle Allison is still out and Dougie Brydon is a doubt after missing the last two games.

Kevin Harper made wholesale changes to his squad during the January transfer window and has reaped the rewards. Albion won 3 games in successive to ease their relegation fears, resulting in Harper being named Manager of the Month for March and goalkeeper Greg Morrison winning the monthly player award.
