Match Preview

Ponton boosts Berwick Berwick have added midfielder Arran Ponton to their squad for their home game against former manager John Coughlin's East Stirlingshire. Rangers defeated Second Division Dumbarton in the Ramsdens Cup in midweek and striker Fraser McLaren is Berwick's only doubt, while manager Jimmy Crease looking for his side to replicate their impressive cup form in the league. Crease said: "Things have been going really well in the cups, but the league is what you're judged on and we got off to a poor start last week at Elgin when we lost 4-1. "It will not be an easy three points as John will bring his side here well-organised and difficult to break down, but we have the players here that have the ability to do that." East Stirling have added Nico Gibson and Scott Maxwell to their squad. Gibson, a former Aberdeen youth team striker, and Maxwell, from Dalkeith Thistle, could both start, while defender Ryan Frances is available after suspension. Shire's head coach John Coughlin said: "Berwick have one of the best squads in the Third Division as they have shown in cup competitions so far this season. "They will want to get their promotion challenge up and running after last week's defeat at Elgin, so we have to be on our guard. "We got a good result against Montrose last week, but rode our luck at times so we're far from the finished article."

Match Report

Currie too hot for Shire Paul Currie netted twice in Berwick's 4-2 victory over East Stirling. The hosts were handed an early penalty when Steven Jackson impeded Stuart Noble, and Paul Currie powered his spot-kick into the bottom corner. Berwick extended their lead early in the second half through Damon Gray after the striker latched on to Lee Currie's left-wing cross and calmly converted. The Shire's afternoon got worse when Jackson was dismissed for violent conduct with 20 minutes to play. Within a minute Darren Gribben had slotted in Fraser McLaren, whose decisive finish opened up a three-goal margin for Berwick. East Stirling looked to mount a fightback through Alistair Love, who converted his penalty after he was fouled by Elliot Smith. Love then turned provider with two minutes remaining as he set up Nico Gibson to score. However, Paul Currie ended hopes of a turnaround in stoppage time by tapping in his second from close range.
