The ‘Red Lichties’ are three points clear at the top of the Scottish second division, but Berwick manager Colin Cameron says his side have nothing to fear.

“If we play to our full potential there is no reason why we shouldn’t take three points,” he said, “that would be a nice early Christmas present for everyone connected with the club.”

Rangers’ scheduled trip to Elgin to take on bottom of the table City was postponed at the weekend because of a waterlogged pitch.

The game was called off on Friday afternoon following a pitch inspection and will now be re-arranged for a later date.

The club’s away league fixture at east Fife on February 7 will also need to be re-arranged as Berwick will be playing their Scottish Cup fifth round tie away to Spartans in Edinburgh the same day.

“We had been showing some good form in our previous games,” said Cameron, “and it would have been nice to keep the momentum going against Elgin on Saturday, because now we face the top two teams in successive weeks.”

After Saturday’s match at Arbroath, Rangers take on second-placed Queen’s Park at Shielfield on Saturday, December 27.

“It’s a tough couple of matches coming up, but the players are up to the challenge.”

With the exception of captain Stephen Tulloch, who is still ruled out with a broken cheek, Cameron expects to have a full squad to choose from for the trip to Angus.
