Berwick’s second-choice goalkeeper, Billy Bald, faces a spell on the sidelines after undergoing an operation on his leg.

Bald picked up the injury when he was playing for Berwick Rangers in the Scottish Cup tie at Culter and was unavailable for the replay at Shielfield Park.

Goalkeeping coach Gary O’Connor took over between the posts for the replay because on-loan Paul Grant was not given permission to play by parent club Hibernian.

Berwick face Dumbarton at home in the fourth round of the cup at the beginning of December and 39-year-old O’Connor is on standby if Bald has not recovered in time to play in the game.
