Match Preview : Berwick Rangers v Elgin City FC – Ladbrokes League Two

The ‘Gers are back at Shielfield tomorrow night for a League Two game against Elgin City, who travel down from Borough Briggs for the 7.45pm kick-off.

Berwick are looking for a vital victory to move further away from recently in-form Cowdenbeath.

The other league game at Shielfield earlier in 2017/18 was one of the highlights of the season as two Aaron Murrell strikes sealed a late 3-2 comeback victory.

Gavin Price and his Elgin side will arrive with confidence having ended a run of three consecutive defeats with a 0-2 triumph away at Stenhousemuir at the weekend.

Elgin also delivered two of the heaviest defeats to Berwick this season recording 5-1 and 3-0 wins at Borough Briggs earlier this campaign, the more recent result coming on 10th March 2018.
