BERWICK manager Colin Cameron says his side face a 'must-win' game against Elgin tomorrow if they are to keep their end of season play-off hopes alive.

Rangers, after two wins in a week, were held to a 1-1 draw at Shielfield by title-chasing Queen's Park - and afterwards Cameron admitted it was a result which didn't suit either side.

"In our position, we need wins and three points to keep us in contention," he said. "We face Elgin in our game in hand on Tuesday night up at Borough Briggs and that now becomes a must-win match for us."

After beating Montrose and East Fife in the previous seven days, Rangers were looking for a hat-trick of victories to keep them in the hunt.

They fielded an unchanged side, but in a game spoiled by the windy conditions, neither side managed to show any quality on the ball.

John Carter fired the visitors in front after 19 minutes when he tapped in from close range, the opening having been created by Shaun Rooney who cut in from the right and cut the ball back from the byeline.

But just five minutes before half-time, Paul Willis levelled for Rangers from the penalty spot, firing low past Mike Muir after Ross Gray was fouled by Sean Burns in the box.

In the second half, chances were at a premium at both ends. Willis was unlucky when he had a shot saved by Muir and with less than a minute remaining, striker Blair Henderson lifted the ball over the bar after Kyle Wilkie made a surging run down the middle.

Meanwhile, Berwick have confirmed midfielder Stevie Notman is now likely to miss the rest of the season with a knee injury as is goalkeeper Billy Bald after he broke his hand.
