Preview: Berwick Rangers v Annan Athletic – SPFL Ladbrokes League Two

The ‘Gers will be looking to build on an improved performance against Stirling on Saturday to ensure that they don’t miss out on the points once more as they take on Annan Athletic in a rearranged fixture.

Berwick could lift themselves off the bottom of League Two with a win, though East Stirlingshire have the chance to protect their 9th placed position away at Arbroath tomorrow night.

Berwick Rangers Team News:

Midfielder Steven Notman will be looking to celebrate his 200th appearance in Black and Gold with what would be a vital three points tomorrow, the ‘Gers mainstay hitting the landmark in what is his 8th season playing for the club.

The ‘Gers will be bolstered by the return of Jonny Fairbairn, the defender having completed a two game suspension for a red card received in a 2-1 defeat in Elgin.

John Coughlin may also once again include a young trialist forward who featured from the bench at the weekend.

However Berwick will be without Hibernian youngster Jordan McGregor after the defender saw red at the weekend for denying a clear goalscoring opportunity.

Annan Athletic Team News:

Annan manager Jim Chapman will be without defender Ryan Finnie, who recently agreed a termination of his deal to pursue full-time football, having made 17 appearances for the club.

It was a busy January for Chapman though, who replaced Finnie with former Arbroath and Forfar defender Kevin Nicoll, whilst adding former Doncaster Rovers forward Lewis Guy from Chorley FC to bolster his frontline.

The away side also utilised the loan market. Celtic youngster Jack Breslin rejoined the club for another loan after impressing in the latter half of last season at Galabank, midfielder Ben Jago joined on loan from Tranmere Rovers, and striker Jordan Morton arrived from Airdrie in another loan move.
