Berwick manager Colin Cameron has asked supporters to ‘keep faith’ with his players in what is becoming an increasingly frustrating period for the club.
Saturday’s 2-3 home defeat at the hands of East Fife means Rangers have now only won one of their last eight league games.
Cameron said he accepted the concerns felt by some fans, but he urged them to continue backing the team.
“They can take it out on me because I am the manager,” he said, “but I would ask them to get behind the team and give them their full support - it can make all the difference.”
Cameron is due to meet with supporters at a talk-in at Shielfield on Friday (November 21) when he will repeat the message.
The manager was left to bemoan the loss of three goals from set pieces against East Fife at Shielfield on Saturday . . . and the fact that Rangers’ home record is not what it might be.
Darren Lavery netted a double as Berwick twice came from behind, only to lose to a 93rd minute injury time goal.
“It’s good to see Darren back amongst the goals,” said Cameron. “That’s four for him in the last two games, but we didn’t take anything out of this match.”
“We showed character in scoring twice through Darren to get us back to 2-2, but we couldn’t see the game out and it’s another point dropped.
“It was frustrating that all three goals we conceded came from set pieces. We also conceded two from set pieces up at Methil a fortnight ago, so that’s five in two games, and that is a bit of a concern.
“We have taken a couple of steps forward in recent weeks with back to back wins, but this is a step backwards for us.
“But I have been in football long enough to realise we just have to pick ourselves up, dust ourselves down, and go again in the next game.”
Berwick are now in a run which will see them play games at home on four successive Saturday’s and Cameron says they have to take advantage.
The next match is against Annan this weekend and the manager admits they have got to start winning and picking up points again.
“So far this season we have only won twice at home,” he said, “and one of those games was in the cup. It’s not good enough, and if we want to be considered as play-off hopefuls we have to start winning our home games.”
