Berwick brush Queens Park aside

Berwick remain on course for a play-off place after coming from behind to record a superb 4-1 home victory against fellow promotion chasers Queens Park.

The visitors went ahead after just four minutes when Alan Urquhart found the bottom corner from the edge of the area.

Ian Little's men made a swift response, however, and drew level six minutes later when Steven Notman forced home Lee Currie's centre.

The home side completed their turnaround three minutes later thanks to Darren Lavery's fine long-range strike.

Lavery was on hand to provide the assist for Currie soon after as the Black and Gold midfielder extended the hosts' lead with a well-taken right-footed finish.

Notman sealed the victory with his second goal of the afternoon in the 50th minute, nodding in from close range as Little's side moved to within four points of their out-of-form opponents.

Berwick with problems before showdown

Berwick have their fair share of problems as they prepare to face Queen's Park in a vital game in the play-off race.

The Shielfield side are missing the long-term injured Dene Droudge (knee) and Marc Lancaster (back), and have added Dougie Brydon to their treatment room's occupants as he suffers a groin problem.

Manager Ian Little said: "Despite losing our last three games we still have a chance of making the play-offs.

"We beat Queen's Park 2-0 last month and a repeat of that would be fantastic and help keep our hopes going.

"A win would give us a platform for the rest of the season."

Queen's Park, who have not won in their last five games, head to Berwick with a growing injury list.

Paul Gallacher and Tony McParland (both ankle) have been joined in the treatment room by David Anderson, who suffered a similar problem after Wednesday's 2-0 defeat by Annan.

Jamie Brough misses out for a fourth game with an ankle knock, but head coach Gardner Speirs is looking to make up for a disappointing performance against the Borderers on his side's last visit.

Speirs said: "We lost that night to two goals from set-pieces and that was really disappointing as you want to make teams work hard to get goals.

"We were also very disappointing in a creative sense that night so I am looking for an improvement at both ends of the pitch in this game."
