Match Preview

Red Lichties missing Rattray Arbroath are without injured defender Alan Rattray for the home clash with in-form Berwick. Player-boss Paul Sheerin has urged his men to see off the Borderers and came through the rest March undefeated to be in with a shout of the title. Sheerin said: "If we come through this game with a win and then remain undefeated throughout the rest of the month we will be in a strong position to have a successful season. "There is just so many games getting played just now and everyone seems to be playing everyone so that has to be our aim. "Berwick are on a great run of form just now and scoring a lot of goals." Berwick are without the injured trio of goalkeeper Ian McAldon, winger Fraser McLaren and striker Craig O'Reilly. Steve Notman will also be absent due to a ban but Elliot Smith is now fully fit and ready for a starting role with midfielder John Grant free of suspension and striker Alan Brazil likely to shake off a knock. Borderers boss Jimmy Crease, who has led his men to four wins and a draw in their last five outings said: "We have picked up well recently but the next two games will be a test of how serious we are about being involved at the end of the season. "Arbroath on their own patch is a really tough game and after that we have Albion Rovers so we need to keep our good form going."

Match Report

Swankie wins it for Smokies Steven Doris scored Arbroath's winner in a 2-1 victory over Berwick to strengthen their dominance of Scottish Division Three. Darren Hill scored an own goal in the 90th minute to deny Arbroath a clean sheet. Keith Gibson put the hosts ahead with a header from six yards out on 20 minutes but Mark Peat's double save against Kieran McAnespie and Josh Falkingham kept Berwick in contention. Chris McLeod blasted over the bar a few minutes before the first-half whistle to deny Berwick an equaliser. Doris' header connected with an inswinging corner from Gavin Swankie to double the advantage five minutes into the second half. Peat was up to the task again as he smothered a Swankie effort with less than a minute remaining before Hill put through his own net.
