Berwick manager Colin Cameron is hoping his side can use Saturday’s impressive home win over Montrose as a springboard to force their way back into the play-off picture.

Rangers, with only one point from their previous three games, raced to their biggest win of the season, climbed two places up the table, and went to within four points of a top four place.

“After last week’s 4-0 defeat at Annan I was looking for a response from the players,” said Cameron, “and I certainly got it.

“That was the best performance from the team since I took over.”

Striker Darren Lavery opened the scoring after only five minutes, when he burst through the middle and shot low past Stuart McKenzie with a neat finish.

Andy Russell might have doubled the advantage after 16 minutes, but he headed over a cross from the right inside the six-yard box with the goal at his mercy.

Rangers effectively killed the game off with two goals in the space of two minutes midway through the first half.

First of all Stevie Notman forced the ball over the line from close range from a cross by Ross Gray after 23 minutes, and then Notman turned provider, crossing for skipper Lee Currie to head in from close range after 25 minutes.

In the second half Rangers continued to make the running and they made the game safe with a fourth, Lee Currie picking himself up after he was floored in the box to net from the penalty spot for his 13th goal of the season after 61 minute

Substitute Paul Currie also had the ball in the net, but the effort was ruled out for offside.

Substitute Scott Dalziel completed the scoring when he chested the ball down on the edge of the six yard box in injury time, twisted and beat his marker before finding the bottom corner for the fifth.
