IAN Little, now confirmed as permanent manager of Berwick Rangers, revealed he and his assistant Robbie Horn have a double mission to undertake in the remaining weeks of the season.

The Borderers boss said: “First of all we will be going out to try and identify a number of new players we would like to bring to the club as well as those from the existing squad we hope to keep.

“Secondly we have now gone eight games at home in the league without a win and that is not good enough.

“One of the priorities for the remainder of the season must be to address this problem and regain a winning touch at Shielfield Park particularly for the fans.”

After watching his side slump 4-1 at home to Queens Park, Little added: “At half-time I thought we were well in contention because there was not much between the teams.

“After the break it took a goal from Queens Park to spark us into life for a short spell and we hit back with an equaliser.

“Unfortunately, a mistake by Michael Deland proved costly and when the own goal went in it killed us off.”

The Spiders edged in front in 54 minutes courtesy of Jamie Brough after the defence failed to clear Martin McBride’s corner.

Two minutes later the hosts were level as David Greenhill hit the target with a bullet header from a Damon Gray cross.

McBride put the visitors back in front just after the hour mark and two minutes later an attempted clearance by Jordon Forster, on loan from Hibs, whistled into his own net. Sub Michael Daly wrapped it up in 79 minutes.
