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

Football is back! We hope that the relentless beast from the east has finally subsided and that the League Two match away at Elgin City will be on tomorrow, kick off 3pm.

Robbie and the boys will travel to Elgin hoping for a first game since 24th February due to the cold snap.

This is the third meeting between the sides this season and if it is anything like the first two it promises to be an entertaining affair.

Elgin inflicted a 5-1 hammering on the ‘Gers in the last meeting at Borough Briggs, with Gary Phillips netting the solitary Berwick strike. However, a rousing comeback at Shielfield Park meant that the ‘Gers won the other encounter 3-2, with late goals from now departed Michael McKenna and Aaron Murrell (2) completing the turnaround.

Unfortunately Aaron Murrell won’t be the hero this time as he is sidelined with injury. Darren Lavery is also unavailable. Kevin McKinlay is back and ready for selection.

Robbie Horn is looking forward to having a game this weekend and is planning to building on the momentum of the last two drawn league games. Berwick will be looking for a first win since 27th January, due to some bad luck and bad weather, and to take some confidence into the upcoming run of home fixtures.
