Match Preview : Berwick Rangers v Clyde FC – Ladbrokes League Two

Berwick Rangers return to Shielfield Park on Saturday, in Ladbrokes League Two, with both players and supporters hoping for some home comforts after the 4-0 reverse at Stenhousemuir last weekend.

Danny Lennon and his Clyde side are the visitors for this game, with the match kicking off at 3pm. Clyde arrive in town on somewhat of a mini revival with three consecutive wins in the league.

Only a point separates the two sides in the table and a victory for the Bully Wee would see them leapfrog Berwick into 7th place in the standings.

Robbie Horn and his side will be hoping for a similar result as the last league encounter at Shielfield Park where two goals from on-loan Andrew Irving and a strike from Aaron Murrell gave the ‘Gers a 3-1 victory near the start of the season. This was followed up with a 0-0 draw in the game at Clyde just before Christmas.

Horn will have to shuffle his pack for this game with Keiran Stewart and Gary Phillips both picking up red cards in the game at Stenhousemuir.

Supporters will be hoping for a home debut for recent signing Jamie Todd, having been a substitute last weekend. There is also likely to be a second home debut for Paul Willis, after he returned to the club for a second spell.

Manager Robbie Horn has confirmed that Kevin McKinlay is definitely out with injury, with four other squad members struggling with knocks that will need to be assessed as late as possible to kick off.

Clyde News

Lennon and his side seem to have been buoyed by a busy transfer window with Jack Boyle and Dylan Cogill making debuts off the bench in the 3-2 win against Edinburgh City last time out.

Clyde have also added Ray Grant to the first team recently. The 21-year-old midfielder has signed until the end of the season. Grant has one cap for Scotland at under-19 level.

Steve Kipre is also likely to make his debut, having been formally registered on terms this week. Kipre has been training with the club and put pen to paper following international clearance.

The win against Edinburgh had a familiar feeling for the Bully Wee this season as the winner was netted by leading scorer and former Scotland international David Goodwillie. He has 13 league goals for the season.
