Match Preview: Kilmarnock v Berwick Rangers – League Cup Round Two

After proving their resiliency and ability to win away from home, the ‘Gers will be looking to make it two on the bounce against a Kilmarnock side who are still yet to taste victory this season.

Berwick Team News:

Kieran Ainslie & Mark Walters could retain their positions in the squad

Kieran Ainslie & Mark Walters could retain their positions in the squad

Kevin Walker will be available again for the ‘Gers after serving his suspension at the weekend, however whether player-boss Colin Cameron opts to field him or Mark Walters is unknown.

One player likely to keep his spot in the team is Kieran Ainslie, despite being forced off on his debut in Stirling after suffering from cramp.

The game will likely come too soon for Steven Notman who only returned to light training last week, though if Cameron can put in another performance like that which impressed fans in our 3-1 weekend win, there’ll be no problems in midfield.

Euan Bauld and Calum Helm both remain sidelined through injury.

Kilmarnock Team News:

After a poor start, Killie will be looking to take advantage of lower league opposition to get their first win of the season.

However, there are likely to be a few changes to the Kilmarnock side which played on Saturday after suffering a 4-0 defeat to Ross County.

Even if Killie boss Gary Locke was hoping to field an unchanged side, changes are likely to be forced after Lee McCulloch, Darryl Westlake & captain Mark Connolly were all forced of with injury in the first-half of Saturday’s defeat.


Berwick fans can buy tickets from the club shop at Kilmarnock on Tuesday night not far from the turnstiles we will be using – approximately 50 metres. It is a case of going to the shop, buying a ticket then heading back to turnstiles and entering the Frank Beattie Stand by gates 1 or 2. The Club shop is right in front of the centre of the Frank Beattie Stand – at the edge of the official car park – it stands alone away from the main building.

As a matter of interest only cars with passes are allowed to enter the stadium compound – fans in cars have to park in the car park on the opposite side of Tesco on the way to the ground. No buses are allowed in either apart from the team bus – Buses park in Holmquarry Road and Burnside Streetwhich just happen to border around the same car park opposite Tesco as well.

Adults – £15

Concessions – £10

Under 16s – £5

Match Odds:

Kilmarnock’s winless start doesn’t mean much to the bookies who fancy Killie to get up and running – though the ‘Gers will be looking to defy the odds once more after being unfancied against Alloa Athletic earlier in the competition.

Kilmarnock – 3/10

Draw – 3/1

Berwick Rangers – 7/1

Enjoy the game!
