Culter’s free-scoring forward George McBain is hungry for more goals as the Aberdeen juniors go in search of a Scottish Cup third-round shock against Berwick Rangers at Crombie Park today (2.0).
The 27-year-old attacker scored two of Culter’s goals in their 3-1 first-round replay triumph over Highland League club Lossie-mouth and also grabbed a double in the second round win at Newton Stewart.
He said: “We had a bad result at Ashfield when we lost 3-2 in the Junior Cup last weekend, but all the guys were buzzing in training on Tuesday night so we’re really all looking forward to the weekend and hopefully we will get a good result.
“I have built up a great understanding up front with Jamie McAllister, if one of us is not on fire on any day the other one usually is, so that is good.
“We will certainly not underestimate Berwick. They are a Scottish League 2 side and to be totally honest we really don’t expect to win, pretty much along the same lines as when we played Partick Thistle at Crombie Park a couple of years ago.
“We drew against Partick that day, so once again we will just turn up and do our best. We have absolutely nothing to lose.”
McBain believes the tight confines of Crombie Park can work in the home side’s favour.
He added: “With Aberdeen not playing until Monday night I think we will get quite a good crowd this weekend, especially as it is not all-ticket and the supporters can pay at the gate.
“Our pitch is quite tight. I don’t think the Ber- wick players will like that at all.
“When Partick came to Crombie they found that the dressing-rooms were small to what they were used to and there is also the slight slope to our pitch, so all of those things should be to our advantage on the day.”
