Peterhead 1 - 2 Berwick Rangers

Saturday 24th March 2012
R McAllister (pen 49)D Handling (23, 56)

Berwick grateful for Handling brace

Danny Handling scored twice to inspire 10-man Berwick to a 2-1 victory over Peterhead.

The visitors leapfrogged their rivals into sixth place and put the disappointment of a 4-1 home defeat in their last match behind them.

Handling opened the scoring after 23 minutes, latching on to Lee Currie's cross from the right to fire past Paul Jarvie from the centre of the penalty area.

The home side equalised from the penalty spot after 49 minutes. Defender David Donald was brought down by Ross Gray in the area, leaving Rory McAllister to slot home.

Handling grabbed his second seven minutes later, picking up Steven Notman's pass and curling home from 20 yards.

Berwick's Jordon Forster was dismissed for deliberate handball two minutes later but his side hung on to claim the win.

Peterhead blunt in attack

Peterhead will have a depleted strike force against visitors Berwick.

Frontman David Ross misses out due to a hamstring injury and winger Bryan Deasley is absent after picking up a knock in a midweek friendly with Aberdeen.

Manager Jim McInally has targeted a win in this game in order that his men can continue to recover from a terrible start to the season which saw them occupy bottom place in December.

McInally said: "Ever since we went to the bottom we have looked to improve one league position at a time.

"We have looked to jump over the team immediately above us and it has worked as we are now up to sixth place.

"Winning this one keeps Berwick at bay and keeps us on Annan's tail."

Berwick have added to their squad ahead of their trek north, with striker Danny Handling coming in on loan from Hibs.

Handling will face the Blue Toon at some stage, whether that be from the off or from the bench, however, Fraser McLaren is out injured and Andy McLean is absent through work commitments.

Shielfield boss Ian Little said: "We have been beaten 1-0 by Peterhead in our last two games and both times it has been as a result of a defensive mistake.

"I am hoping that this time they make the defensive mistake and we pick up the win.

"We head to Balmoor after a disappointing result against Queen's Park last Saturday when we lost four second-half goals, however we can take heart from the display which was a lot better than the scoreline suggests."
