Berwick manager Colin Cameron says his players will face ‘a test of character’ this weekend when they take on Albion Rovers at Shielfield.
Following last weekend’s 2-0 defeat away to bottom of the table Annan, Cameron admitted to ‘having a go at the players’ in the dressing room afterwards.
“I told them I needed to see some kind of response, so it will be interesting to see how they react against Albion,” he said.
Cameron thought his team created enough chances at Annan to win two or three games.
“I thought we dominated and controlled the match with some swift passing,” he said.
“But when the chances came and went I began to wonder if it was going to be our day.
“I knew Annan would come out a stronger side in the second half, and to their credit they did, but what disappointed me was the way in which we lost concentration, lost focus and let our heads drop after the first goal went in.
“The second goal killed us off, and to be fair to them, Annan might have scored more near the end.
“To have so much possession and create so many chances but not to score was disappointing,” he added.
“To be honest, I think I was shell-shocked at the end.”
For this weekend’s game against Albion Berwick will again be without Lee Currie, who serves the second of his two match ban.
“Lee is also suffering from shin-splints at the moment and has been ordered to take two weeks rest, so the suspension has worked in our favour,” said Cameron.
“Paul Currie and Andy Russell were both on the bench on Saturday, but did not have enough game time to consider bringing them on. They will play mid-week and might be back Saturday.
“Ross Gray is also due back this week and is itching to return, but I don’t think Ben Miller will be back at the moment after suffering a family bereavement.
“Everyone at the club is there for him and we will give him as long as it takes.”
