Match Preview

Wild misses Christmas clash Annan will be again be without defender Gary Wild and striker Graeme Bell through injury as they look to take over top spot by defeating Berwick Rangers two days before league leaders Stranraer face Clyde. Aaron Muirhead sits out through suspension with Galabank boss Harry Cairney wary of facing the Borderers. "Our record against Berwick at home is not that good, in fact we will be going for our first win over them at our patch," he said. "They were defeated at Peterhead in midweek and will be coming here looking to make up for that. "They have a lot of good strikers in their ranks but if we play like we did in the first half against Montrose in our last game we will do okay." Berwick full-back Elliot Smith is out of the match after picking up a knock at Peterhead in midweek, and joins centre-back Chris McLeod on the sidelines. Young striker Daniel Lavery returns to the squad after missing out on Tuesday, with interim boss Ian Little recognising that the first goal in the game could prove to be crucial. Little said: "We have a good record at Annan and it would be great to keep that going, especially after being unlucky in midweek at Peterhead. "We had chances when the game was goalless but, as so often happens in this league, the first goal is crucial. Hopefully we will get that at Galabank and keep our noses in front for the rest of the game."

Match Report

Galabankies miss chance to go top Annan missed the chance to celebrate Christmas Day at the top of the Third Division table after being held to a 2-2 draw by Berwick at Galabank. With leaders Stranraer not due to play until Boxing Day, goals from Peter Watson and Ian Harty looked to have set up the victory required to leapfrog the Blues into top spot. However, Scott Gibson's own-goal set up a tense finale and substitute Darren Gribben snatched a late equaliser before both sides had a man sent off. David Cox's corner found Watson who nodded home in the 18th minute, before Harty latched on to Sean O'Connor's pass to beat Jamie Barclay low to his right four minutes before the break. Gibson managed to slice through his own net with 13 minutes remaining before Gribben seized on Richard Walker's rebound to finish with aplomb from the edge of the area nine minutes from time. In a fractious end to proceedings, Annan's Michael McGowan saw red for foul and abusive language with Steven Notman dismissed for the visitors for a second bookable offence.
