Gretna 2008 0-1 Berwick Rangers

The ball fell favourably to the feet of the Berwick man from a corner and he made no mistake in finding the net just after the hour mark.

Michael McIndoe’s team have been turning in good performances as of late, but they have failed to get the rub of the green.

Last Tuesday the squad were seconds away from taking a point against Rangers’ second string before they lost to the last kick of the ball.

And after Saturday it was hard for the management to find any negatives apart from not being able to put the ball in the net; which is of course the most important thing in a game of football.

Speaking after the Berwick match, assistant manager Robbie Park said: “We can’t seem to get the rub of the green right now. We’re doing everything right off the ball and on the ball apart from one thing, which is the most important thing in football, scoring a goal.

“It’s also the hardest thing to do. I thought we battered Berwick today, you could hear them celebrating in the changing room showing how relieved they were to come away with three points.

“I think it was one or two shots they had all game and one fell to their guy in the box, I think it was a ricochet, it was a tap in and that was the difference.”

On Saturday the lads travel to Airdrie to face Celtic B, Park added: “I’m looking forward to it. I always look at playing Celtic, Rangers and Hearts as a chance for us to learn as coaches and as a group. Because you’re coming up against guys who are full time. It’s a good chance for us to learn as coaches, but also as players to learn positionally where they need to be.

“It’s only a matter of time before the good karma comes back around for us. I think we’ve suffered enough, so I’m looking forward to the challenge that the weekend poses.”
