Montrose boss Stewart Petrie wary of threat posed by Berwick

Montrose may have beaten Berwick already this season but the Angus side’s boss Stewart Petrie is taking absolutely nothing for granted when the two sides meet again at Links Park this afternoon.

The Gable Endies gaffer picked up the Ladbrokes Manager of the Month Award for November earlier this week.

Petrie though is now fully focused on a busy December as his side look to consolidate their place as one of the League 2 promotion pace-setters.

However, the manager is wary of a Berwick side who will arrive in confident mood after securing a notable victory over Stirling Albion last week.

He said: “It was a good point for us last week as Clyde is always a difficult place to go to.

“They were always going to come out strongly trying to impress their new management team of Danny Lennon and Allan Moore.

“Ultimately, we probably cancelled each other out but a draw was a fair result.

“We failed to score and our lack of goals is a concern.

“It is something we have spoken about and worked hard on in training that we have to hit the back of the net more often.”

Petrie added: “The onus isn’t just on the strikers – we need to carry more of a threat from setpieces and the wide areas.

“However, it would be more of a worry if we weren’t winning but we cannot rely on our defence to keep clean sheets all the time.

“Hopefully the hard work on the training field will pay off against Berwick at home.

“We may have beaten them once already this season but they are a big, strong side and their tails will be up after their victory over Stirling Albion last Saturday which once again shows just how competitive this league is.

“There are no easy games and we know we will have to work hard once again.

“Every game brings its own challenges and we will have to be at our best against Berwick.”

Ryan Ferguson and Danny Cavanagh have returned to full training this week but both have had long injury lay-offs and will not be risked against Berwick.
