Berwick return to action after a week’s break when they travel to take on bottom of the table Annan at Galabank on Saturday.

Annan have made a disappointing start to the season and only have one point from their four games so far.

But manager Colin Cameron is taking nothing for granted and says his team have to remain focused if they want to take all three points.

After surrendering a 3-1 lead at Clyde in their last game, when they drew 3-3, Cameron says his side have to be more resilient if they are to figure in the race for the title or the play-offs.

Rangers will travel west without Lee Currie, who is suspended after being sent off at Broadwood a fortnight ago.

And fellow midfielder Paul Currie will also miss the trip after it was revealed he has a knee injury.

Currie was thought to have taken a routine knock in an earlier game against East Fife, but later examination revealed the injury may be more serious than first believed.

“We thought Paul’s injury would have cleared up by now, so it is a concern,” said Cameron.

“I’ve spoke to the physio, Steven Shaw, and he thinks there is a possibility that there could be a small fracture, just under the knee. Obviously, we need to get that checked out.

“We’re still hopeful that this isn’t the case and that we can get him back into contention soon.

“I feel we carry a stronger goal threat from midfield when Paul is on the park, so we’ll be hoping we can get him fighting fit and ready to go again.”

* Berwick have snapped up 17-year-old Kai Wilson, a defender who had previously been with Hearts. Kai will join the squad immediately and feature in the Under 20 team, initially.

Meanwhile, Berwick are still on the hunt for another centre-back to add to their first-team squad.

“This is an area where we need to find cover,” said Cameron, “and I am on the look-out to make a new signing.

“Hopefully we will be in a position to make an announcement soon.”
