Berwick manager Colin Cameron says his team are back on track for the end of season play-offs.

After taking over the Shielfield hot-seat from Ian Little, Cameron said he was targeting a top- four finish for the under-achieving Rangers.

And after Saturday’s 3-0 win away to Albion Rovers, which followed on from their 4-0 home victory over Stirling Albion, the new player-boss said: “The play-offs have always been my expectations.

“The lads have done tremendously well so far and I couldn’t have asked any more of them.

“People have been saying that they have been playing well all season without getting the results, the change of manager seems to have given them that little boost they needed to turn things around.

“It’s been nice to win the two opening games, but it’s also been pleasing that we have kept two clean sheets - that also gives the team a lift.”

Cameron is now hoping to keep the run going when Berwick travel to take on Clyde at Broadwood on Saturday.

The ‘Bully Wee’ currently sit second in the table, six points ahead of Rangers, mainly down to the fact that they have already recorded two 1-0 wins (home and away) over The Borderers this season.

“We will go into the game with some confidence, but obviously without being over-confident,” said Cameron.

“The way the lads are playing at the moment I think we can get a result.”

Meanwhile, Paul Currie, who has scored in each of Cameron’s two games in charge believes the boss’s skills as a player as much as a manager will turn things around at Berwick.

The midfielder, who recently returned to the club after spells with Hamilton, Arbroath and Bonnyrigg Rose said: “The manager is a great player as well and he took control last week against Stirling.

“Maybe that’s what we’ve been missing – a leader on the park. It has certainly given the whole club a massive lift.”
