Match Preview

Berwick could be without goalkeeper Mark Peat and winger Fraser McLaren for the visit of an Arbroath side keen to make up for a 4-1 defeat at Shielfield earlier in the season. The Borderers, who will also be without long-term absentee Stuart Callaghan, will have to push memories of last Sunday`s televised Scottish Cup clash against Celtic to the back of their minds and concentrate on getting only their second win in nine league games. Manager Jimmy Crease said: "The excitement of facing Celtic is gone now so we have to get our feet back on the ground. "This is a hard league game to come back to as they have a lot more good players on board than when we played them earlier in the season." Arbroath have added recent loan signing Craig Wedderburn to their squad for the trip over the border. The defender, who has signed from Raith, comes in as striker Jim Hamilton prepares for a new challenge after joining East Fife. The Red Lichties have won five of their last six league matches and manager Paul Sheerin is keen for his side to avenge the 4-1 defeat in the reverse fixture against Berwick in September. He said: "They gave us a bit of a battering at a time in the season when we were losing goals for fun and I am hopeful that we can show how much we have improved as a side. "I watched Berwick play Celtic but I did not learn to much as I am sure they will play a different style in this game."

Match Report

Two-goal Swankie sinks Berwick Gavin Swankie netted a brace as Arbroath hammered promotion rivals Berwick 4-0. All four goals came in a frenetic 20-minute spell in the second half, with Swankie bagging two before Ross Chisholm and Keith Gibson got in on the act. Berwick had more than matched the visitors until Swankie's opener from 12 yards after 68 minutes seemed to send them off the rails. The midfielder, who also scored twice in Arbroath's 5-0 demolition of Montrose this month, then doubled his tally with a coolly-placed shot from similar range. Youngster Chisholm netted his first goal in professional football when he turned in Josh Falkingham's cross from inside the area. There was more to come for the rampant visitors as Gibson rose to nod home Kieran McAnespie's flighted cross with two minutes left.
