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

The ‘Gers travel to Elgin City for the final regulation league fixture of the season on Saturday, with kick-off at 3pm.

With Johnny Harvey leaving his post this week, John Brownlie and Ian Little have been appointed as Manager and Assistant Manager respectively. They will be in charge for the game at Borough Briggs.

Both sides are in poor form with neither winning in their last 5 games. The new management duo will be looking for a positive performance to take into the vital play-off games in the next two weeks.

No doubt there will be some eyes on the result of the game between Cove Rangers and East Kilbride, with Cove leading 2-1 from the first leg.

This will be the 52nd league encounter between the two sides in history with the current record as follows:

Berwick 18

Drawn 12

Elgin City 21

The Gers have scored 87 times against Elgin to date and both sides have beaten each other already this season.

The big news this week obviously centres around the managerial change and what team changes might be made ahead of two of the biggest games in the clubs history. Hopefully Dougie Brydon and Ouzy See can get some minutes in preparation for the crunch play-offs.

Elgin City News

Elgin’s season has petered out in recent months, possibly since leading scorer Shane Sutherland deflected to table topping Peterhead mid-way through the campaign. Brian Cameron is the leading scorer still at the club with 7 goals this season.

The club boosted the ranks for next season this week with the signing of Rory MacEwan on a one-year deal. The youngster has played for the club before.


Elgin 2/5

Draw 10/3

Berwick 9/2
