‘We must remain focused’ - Cameron

Berwick’s win over Queen’s Park on Saturday lifted them to within a point of a play-off place.

Player-manager Colin Cameron was naturally delighted at the result, but said afterwards that lack of complacency in the coming weeks is a key factor.

“The play-offs have always been the target,” he said, “and that is still the case. We are now within touching distance of them, and our first job is to get there. If and when we do we will see where it takes us after that. But we cannot afford to become too complacent - we must remain focused.

“Our next match (on Saturday) is against Elgin at home. Another three points from that game would be very welcome, but injuries and suspensions are starting to kick in now and that is when the squad comes into its own.”

Steven Notman missed Saturday’s game after being sent off at Clyde a week earlier, but he will available for this weekend’s match against Elgin.

Michael Dunlop is still nursing a shoulder injury and remains a doubt, and new striker Andrew Russell is still sidelined, recovering from a chipped bone in his foot.

Cameron says he should be available for the game away to Annan the following weekend, but it is unlikely he will be risked on the artificial surface.

Of Saturday’s win over Queen’s Park Cameron added:: “For a while it looked like it wasn’t going to be our day, but at half time I told the players to stick with it.

“After last week, when we conceded a last minute equaliser, it was important we got back to winning ways, and to get another clean sheet - the third in my four matches in charge - was an added bonus.”

Meanwhile, skipper Lee Currie said: “That ten points out of 12 under the new boss and the lads are buzzing in the dressing room.

“We are growing in confidence all the time, but we realise we cannot afford to become over confident.

“We just want to keep playing as we are and pick up as many points as we can.”
