‘Big game’ for both clubs says Cameron

Berwick face Stirling Albion this weekend in what is a crunch game.

Rangers travel to Forthbank trailing the fourth-placed club by just two points.

Manager Colin Cameron says: “If we win we will move into a play-off position. When I first came here we were eight points off the play-offs, so we have done well to close the gap.

“It is a big game, but it’s not the be all and end all, because if we lose, we still have a chance.

“The good thing is that it is now in our own hands.”

Cameron admitted that after Saturday’s 3-1 home win over Albion Rovers he ‘had a go’ at the players in the dressingroom after the match.

“We switched off in the second half,” he said, “and allowed them to get a foothold in the game.

“It might sound strange that I had a go at the players after we had just won 3-1, but it shows just how far we have come as a team over the past few months.”

Of the win against Rovers Cameron said: “I thought we deserved the points, but we definitely made it difficult for ourselves.

“We started really well and got an early goal. We were 2-0 up at half-time and a third goal early in the second half put us in the driving seat.

“But after that we stopped doing what we had been doing and we allowed Albion back into the game.

“They scored and for a while put is under a bit of pressure. The substitutes made a difference, because they started playing more direct.

“Under different circumstances I might have come off, but because the way the game was going I decided that my experience might just help us come through the game so I decided to stay on to the end.”

Meanwhile, Cameron has praised the efforts of central defensive pairing Jonny Fairbairn and Stephen Tulloch, who have established a good understanding in recent games.

“They have come together late in the season,” he said, “but they are playing well and are the players inpossession.”
