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

Berwick Rangers travel to Ochilview tomorrow for a showdown with Stenhousemuir FC in a 3pm League Two clash.

Saturday will be the first meeting of the two sides in the league for a few years following The Warriors finishing bottom of League One last season, having been in the upper tier for the best part of a decade.

Brown Ferguson and his team will be looking to continue their recent momentum, with 5 games unbeaten since an opening day defeat at home to Stirling Albion. Stenhousemuir are starting to live up to their pre-season hype as favourites to win the division.

Berwick News

Robbie Horn and his men will travel in high spirits from the morale boosting 3-2 victory at Shielfield Park last Saturday. The ‘Gers will be looking to continue the workrate, fitness and team spirit showed from that encounter whilst on the road.

Marcus Godinho misses out following an injury

Horn has a pretty much full squad to chose from aside from recent loan signing Marcus Godinho, who has been very impressive in his appearances thus far, having picked up a knock this week.

The only absences from the Berwick squad currently are those of Daniel Watt, Jordan Orru and Robert Wilson who remain out on loan with Hill of Beath, Sauchie and Haddington respectively.

Aaron Murrell will be pushing hard for inclusion from the start following his match winning cameo last weekend.

Stenhousemuir News

Brown Ferguson is expected to select a relatively consistent line up from recent weeks following the run of decent results. Mark McGuigan will be the danger man, having netted 5 goals and contributed an assist already in the league this season.

The club would also like to advise supporters who are attending the game that building work is taking place on the land adjacent to Ochilview, meaning that certain walk ways to the ground are uneven or a bit more sloping than usual.

Stenhousemuir have advised all visitors to exercise extra caution and do be mindful of the construction on the road and footpaths when approaching the ground.


The referee this weekend will be Craig Napier. Craig will be supported by Kylie Cockburn and Finlay Currie on the lines.

We wish all supporters a safe journey to the game and hope that our recent improvement under the new management team can continue.

As usual we will be covering the game on social media on Saturday.
