A penalty from Michael McKenna with ten minutes left on the clock saw us lose at Shielfield Park for the first time since March 2009.

There was one change to the side from the previous week with Muirhead returning to the line up and Stirling dropping out of the squad.

In a first half of few chances for either side Muirhead had the first shot on goal after nine minutes but his effort was held by McCorrie, then in 22 minutes Stewart sent an ambitious overhead kick wide.

Mullen then sent in a corner which was headed on by Muirhead but Buchanan sent his shot at the back post wide.

Two minutes from half time McGurn had his first save of the afternoon when he held a 20 yard shot from McKenna.

Cowden opened the second half in a positive fashion and with 51 minutes gone Muirhead shot over from close range.

Connelly then replaced the injured Rutherford and he sent Buchanan through by his shot was blocked by the keeper.

At the other end Thomson sent a cross across the face of the Cowden goal but the danger was eventually cleared.

Midway through the half Buchanan saw another effort blocked by McCorrie while McGurn dived to save a 25 yard effort from Berwick sub Irving.

Garden and McKenna both sent shots over the bar at their respective ends while a Mullen corner caused trouble in the Berwick box with Connelly’s header eventually being held by the keeper.

Fleming then saw a shot come off the post in 79 minutes with the ball eventually fell to Michael McKENNA who was knocked over in the box following a collision with Garden and after picking himself up sent McGurn the wrong way from the resultant spot kick.

A minute later Thomson fired in a free kick from the edge of the box which was held by McGurn and then saw an angled shot flash just past the post.

Then in stoppage time a Brad Smith cross was tipped onto the bar with Scullion clearing the ball off the line following a Garden shot.
