Berwick Rangers manager Colin Cameron is urging his players to maintain the momentum following ‘a decent start’ to their league campaign.
Rangers made it two wins of of three in the league with a 5-0 demolition of East Stirling at Shielfield on Saturday, when the player-boss was amongst the goalscorers with his first counter for the club.
“I think that was my first goal in almost two years,” he said afterwards, “so I suppose you could say it is something of a rarity.
“We’ve made a decent start, but the important thing is that we keep the momentum going. We have a difficult match coming up against Clyde and that is what we are focusing on now.”
Striker Darren Lavery, who netted his first league goal,of the season added: “Hopefully that is a result and performance which will make a few people sit up and take notice.
“We had five different goalscorers today and that takes a bit of pressure off me, because last year we relied too much on Lee (Currie) and myself.”
This was a sentiment echoed by Cameron when he said: “We had five different scorers, which shows there are goals throughout the team.
“We are getting close to how I want us to play with the midfielders getting forward to support the front men, and it worked well today, although there was a spell at the start of the second half when we looked a little nervous.
“Perhaps that was to be expected following our exertions in midweek when we had to play 120 minutes at Morton in the cup.”
Cameron says the arrival of experienced striker Craig Dargo gives him ‘added options’ up front.
Dargo, who has scored over 100 goals in his career, has come off the bench twice in the past week, making an impact on both occasions. He won a last minute penalty at Morton and set up Scott Dalziel for the fourth goal against East Stirling.
“But he is not fully match fit,” said Cameron, “because he has only been playing five-a-sides and in one charity game.”
