Berwick manager Ian Little is calling for more of the same when his team take on Stirling Albion at Shielfield on Saturday.

Rangers have forced their way up to second place in the table following last weekend’s 2-0 away win over Albion Rovers, and Little is calling for his players to show the same level of drive and determination when they take on the Forthbank outfit at home.

“Some people had thought our squad looked a little light,” said Little, “and they questioned our goal threat.

“But I have always had faith in the players we have here, and whilst I wasn’t able to strengthen the squad with another striker, which I would have liked to have done, I am happy with the way things are progressing.

“We are scoring goals, and they are coming from different areas, which is always encouraging.

“Scott (Dalziel) is banging in a few, which I am pleased to see.

“Darren (Lavery) is always a threat, and now young Kenny (O’Brien) is popping up with one or two as well.

“On top of that we have Lee (Currie) who is always dangerous at set pieces.

“We have got ourselves up to second place in the table with some hard work, but we know a lot more hard work and more impressive performances are needed if we are to stay there.”

* Once again this season, Berwick Rangers are offering free admission to any school or youth organisation, sporting or non-sporting, which would like to bring a party to a home Scottish league game of its choice at Shielfield Park.

The visitors will be shown around the ground, will meet players and staff and watch the match from the main stand.

For larger groups or those coming from beyond the immediate locality, the club is able to offer some financial assistance towards travelling costs.
