Match Preview


Gemmell out of action

Albion boss Paul Martin has been able to bring in a trialist goalkeeper as cover for Derek Gaston ahead of the visit of Berwick.

Martin is also looking to bolster his numbers by adding Alloa midfielder Hugh Kerr on loan for a month.

Striker John Gemmell is suspended, and he is joined on the sidelines by the injured quartet of Chris Boyle, Kenny Watt, Terence Dignam and Jamie Gilmartin.

Martin said: "Despite being a bit short of numbers we are looking to get the season off to a good start.

"Last season Berwick and ourselves had great opening quarters and that set us both up for a shot at a play-off place."

Berwick Rangers are set to be without Mark Peat.

Goalkeeper Peat is struggling with an injury so the experienced Iain McAldon is ready to step in as he did last week at Peterhead.

Midfield playmaker Stuart Callaghan is also out for a game that manager Jimmy Crease reckons will be extremely tough.

Crease said: "Albion Rovers has always been a hard place to go and get a result but our preparations for the season went well and we did okay against a good Peterhead side last week before going down.

"Albion Rovers had one of the best defensive records in the league last season, however we have new strikers that are really keen to do well so it should be an intriguing affair."

Match Report

All square at Albion Paul Currie grabbed a late equaliser to snatch Berwick a point in a 2-2 draw against Albion. Albion took the lead through Paul McLeod in the 29th minute after he latched on to a long punt upfield from Alan Benton, but the lead lasted just over two minutes before Berwick equalised. Berwick keeper Derek Gaston's goal-kick was collected by Kevin Gordon, and he advanced before sliding the ball past the onrushing keeper to level the scores at 1-1. Albion regained the lead in the 79th minute through Iain Smith`s close-range finish, but Berwick earned a share of the spoils when Currie equalised with five minutes remaining. He found the bottom left-hand corner of the net from just inside the area.
