Berwick Rangers 1 - 0 Montrose

Tuesday 22nd February 2011
P Currie (89)

Currie leaves it late

Paul Currie's dramatic late goal secured Berwick a 1-0 home win over Montrose, only their second victory in 15 matches.

Currie got on the end of David Greenhill's cross in the 89th minute to score left-footed from 12 yards to send the home support home happy.

The closest either side had came in the first-half was after 25 minutes when Rangers' Stuart Callaghan hit the post from 20 yards.

Montrose did have their chances, Aaron Sinclair headed straight at Berwick goalkeeper Mark Peat after just three minutes.

Paul Tosh also tested Peat in the second half with a close-range strike, while Alan Campbell nodded wide.

The Gable Endies have now only won once in seven games.

Trio added to Berwick squad

Berwick add Kevin Gordon, Ian Little and David Greenhill to their squad to face Montrose as they go in search of only their second win in 15 games.

Defenders Chris McLeod and Elliot Smith will once again miss out through injury, with winger Fraser McLaren likely to join them on the sidelines with a hamstring problem.

The teams are playing each other for the second time in three days, and manager Jimmy Crease is looking for a repeat performance.

Crease was delighted with the effort from his players in the 1-1 draw, and said: "We were down to the bare bones but are in a better shape this time out.

"The players gave everything at Links Park and we will need that again, and if we get it we will be well placed to win."

Montrose manager Steven Tweed welcomes back defender Gordon Pope but Jonathan Crawford and Fraser Milligan remain sidelined.

Goalkeeper Ramiro Gonzalez will make his debut if international clearance comes through in time, with Tweed contemplating a couple of other changes.

Tweed said: "There are a couple of guys complaining of bumps and bruises so I will need to check on them before finalising things. But one thing we have to do is convert our chances at a much better ratio than we have been.

"We got in front on Saturday, but Berwick ended the game stronger than us, so we know it will be tough down there."
