Rangers take play-off push to the wire

Berwick manager Colin Cameron is calling on his players to keep calm and do what they have to do to try and clinch a play-off place.

Saturday’s 3-1 away win over Queen’s Park means Rangers go into the last game of the season against champions Peterhead this weekend, knowing that nothing short of victory will give them a chance of a top four finish.

But to achieve their goal rivals Stirling Albion - who beat Peterherad 4-0 on Saturday - must also lose their final match against Clyde.

“It’s going to the wire,” said Cameron, “but all we can do is try and win our final game against Peterhead and hope that Clyde can beat Stirling as well.

“If that happens we will be in the play-offs as we have a better goal difference. It’s a big ask, but we have to believe.

“The players have given their all over the past few weeks,” said Cameron, “all I can ask of them is for one final push.”

Cameron admits that Rangers will be the underdogs going into the final weekend of the season, but he adds: “Strange things can happen in football.”

“Stirling will start the afternoon as favourites, and we understand that, but we have to go into the game with a positive attitude, believing that anything is possible.”

* Following Saturday’s game the club will hold their annual ‘Player of the Year’ presentations in the Sponsors’ Lounge at Shielfield, starting at approximately 5.30pm.
