Battling Berwick Rangers have been rewarded with an away tie to Premier League side Kilmarnock in the second round of the League Cup.
David Banjo emerged as Berwick’s match-winner against Alloa Athletic in the League Cup first round at Shielfield on Saturday, as the Wee Gers battled back from being 2-0 down to win 3-2 in extra time.
The midfielder said: “I am not a regular goalscorer, but I hope I can get on the scoresheet a bit more often. At half-time it looked like we might be heading out of the cup, but we have a great team spirit here and we knew that if we could get a quick goal back we could turn it around.”
Manager Colin Cameron was full of praise for his players after watching them come from behind to win in extra-time. “At 2-0 down I told the players at half-time to go out and prove themselves. They had to go out and show a battling spirit, and that is what they did,” he said.
“Let’s hope we can take the motivation from this and get off to a winning start in the league against Montrose on Saturday.”
Prior to the game, Cameron, along with chairman Brian Porteous, will meet fans at a talk in the Jeff Burnlees lounge at Shielfield on Friday.
