well let’s kick off with the result. 2-2 against the league leaders. It wasn’t a vintage performance by any means but a valuable point nonetheless, especially as Albion Rovers below us managed a draw too. I arrived at the ground early to offer my services if required. I was tasked with selling raffle tickets and then match programs. My dad stayed at home for this one as my wife and I are down in Berwick for the week. Such a pity for him, he’s been to all but one home game this season (the Cowdenbeath game where were beaten and had 3 red cards) and quite a few away games and it’s been pretty miserable result wise. I’ll take him to the away game against Cowdenbeath next week though and I’ll be hoping for a result against them.
Well as I said it wasn’t a vintage performance and we were under pressure from the start. We didn’t concede a goal in the first few minutes so a bit of improvement there then. This season is a season of survival, let’s not beat around the bush with that. Today was a valuable point and another step in that direction but it was left to the death to get it. That said I as well as many others had written off this game. Edinburgh City flying high this season and I was expecting a thumping but Berwick held on and although it was left late a point was secured with the last kick of the ball. A good show from the team to keep going. Ouzy See’s contribution was certainly worthy. Subbed on for his first game in 9 months after his injury and he lifted the whole team. It was pleasing to see such an impact, the pressure on him must have been incredible but he put in a good performance. It was still a draw against the odds, Berwick had 32% possession to Edinburgh’s 68% and 7 shots to Edinburgh’s 21. But it was still 2-2 at the end of the day and Edinburgh will leave Shielfield disappointed. Still credit to Berwick for the result and it was a great feeling to secure that point especially after the recent run of results.
