Berwick Rangers 1, Queen’s Park 1

MICHAEL Renwick is hoping his Berwick side can stage a ‘Great Escape’.

MICHAEL Renwick is hoping his Berwick side can stage a ‘Great Escape’.

Rangers remain rooted to the foot of the Scottish second division after Saturday’s home draw with Queen’s Park, but after watching his charges follow up last week’s first point on their travels with a battling performance in dreadful conditions, Renwick said: “I believe we are in a false position in the table in terms of the football we are now playing.

“Our first aim is to overtake (second-bottom) Brechin and, if we can achieve that, I am not prepared to settle for a play-off place. I want enough wins to secure survival.”

A blunder by keeper Gary O’ Connor presented the Spiders with a gift-wrapped goal after 25 minutes.

But Rangers showed great determination and loan debutant Kevin Davison provided the perfect delivery for David Greenhill to head the equaliser.
