A SERIES of missed chances cost bottom-of-the-table Berwick Rangers dearly as they crashed to their fourth Second Division away defeat in a row against Queens Park at Hampden.
John Coughlin’s Borderers should have taken at least a point from the game.
Afterwards he said: “This was another soft goal which has again cost us points. I am bitterly disappointed with some of the experienced players.”
First Scott Gemmill missed a chance inside the penalty area and Iain Diack squandered the chance of the half when keeper Mark Cairns let a cross slip and he steered the ball wide.
Park got their reward on 71 minutes when the Berwick defence failed to clear and Mark Ferry pounced.
