Elgin City manager Gavin Price believes defensive resistance holds the key to the Black and Whites maintaining their improved recent form.
City are undefeated in their last three matches, having racked up back-to-back victories over Albion Rovers and Stirling Albion ahead of today’s League 2 trip to Berwick Rangers.
Price is confident he has the firepower to deliver another victory as long as City keep goals out, with the Moray outfit falling to a 4-2 loss when they last faced Berwick at Borough Briggs in November.
Price, who will be without defender Matthew Cooper through a back injury, said: “It has been a lot better recently so we just have to make sure we keep the momentum going – we needed to do it at this time of the season.
“We have to be on our guard and defend a lot better than we did at home against Berwick.
“In the last couple of games we have been better that way, and that has got to be the key focus because if we defend better in games we have shown we have got goals in the team.”
Attacker Kerr Hay came off the bench to net the late winner in last weekend’s 3-2 victory over Stirling Albion and despite losing leading scorer Shane Sutherland to Peterhead in January, Price feels he has strong competition for attacking places.
Price recently drafted in Kane Hester, Scott Roberts and Ross MacIver, and the Elgin boss added: He added: “The three substitutes that came on all made a positive impact in us getting the result. We have options on the bench now, and with the new signings that have come in we have real competition for places up front. It’s a good place to be in.”
