Match Preview

McLeod missing for Rangers Berwick entertain play-off bound Albion without banned defender Chris McLeod. McLeod will, therefore, join injured trio Elliot Smith, Craig O'Reilly and Steve Notman on the sidelines, although winger Fraser McLaren will return to the substitutes' bench after two months out with a hamstring problem. Midfielder Paul Currie and forward Damon Gray are rated as doubts, though, and will need to pass fitness tests. Borderers boss Jimmy Crease said: "It is a case of looking at some players before making final decisions on contracts for next season so there is a lot to play for. "We are down to the bare bones numbers wise but hopefully we can do a lot better than the last time we played Albion Rovers." Albion make the trip having already secured a play-off place for the first time in their history. And manager Paul Martin has urged his players to claim the three points required to secure second spot, which will earn them home advantage in the second leg of their play-off semi-final encounter. Striker John Gemmell looks set to continue on the bench as he has not yet returned to full fitness with only long-term absentee Steven Lawless unavailable to Martin. Martin said: "Finishing second in the table would mean a lot to us as a club. Berwick are a good side and they will still be sore after us winning there 6-1 recently so we need to be on our guard."

Match Report

Gilmartin snatches point Promotion hopefuls Albion left it late to claim a point as James Gilmartin`s close-range finish snatched a 2-2 draw at Berwick. Rob Love gave Albion the perfect start, turning the ball home from close range after just five minutes. Berwick equalised in the 41st minute, Alan Brazil showing superb technique to guide a low volley into the bottom corner from the edge of the penalty area. Rangers went in front after the break when Aaron Ponton's stunning left-foot strike nestled in the far corner from 20 yards in the 49th minute. Love could have extended the hosts' lead but was denied when his point-blank header from a corner was saved by Thomas Flynn. Love was made to pay for his profligacy as substitute James Gilmartin forced home from six yards to rescue a point for the visitors in the 88th minute.
