As­sis­tant man­ager Graeme Mathieson re­mains in charge and he is ex­pect­ing the Border­ers to be in no mood to lose their place in SPFL League 2.

“B e r wi c k a r e a wel l - es­tab­lished se­nior si de and they will not want to give that up,” he said. “We have to play at the level of a se­nior side to get the bet­ter of them.

“Some of our boys have played at that level be­fore and some have not but we need ev­ery­one to be at that level to win.”

Cove will be with­out exRoss County mid­fielder Martin Scott af­ter their ap­peal against the red card he picked up against East Kilbride last week­end was un­suc­cess­ful.

Ber­wick as­sis­tant man­ager Ian Lit­tle wants a dis­ci­plined per­for­mance to en­sure they have somet hing t o play f or i n t he home leg next week­end.

L i t t l e , who was o n l y brought in along­side man­ager John Brown­lie ten days ago said: “We have had one game in charge and t hree t r ai ning s es­sions which is not a lot of time. We can­not change the play­ers, but what we can ask for is that they keep their shape and stick to a game plan.”
