Elgin City manager Jim Weir has challenged his side to move level on points with fifth-placed Berwick Rangers in League 2 tonight.
The Black and Whites go in search of their sixth win in eight matches when they face the Borderers at Borough Briggs.
Weir, who took over from Barry Wilson in November when the Moray men were rock bottom of Scottish football, said: “If anyone had said back then we would have the chance to be level by February on points with a Berwick side pushing for promotion I would not have been believed it.
“It will be remarkable if we do it and I have to thank the players as they have been terrific. It would be great if they could take another step forward by winning this game.
“It will not be easy as I watched the footage of Berwick’s game against Queen’s Park on Saturday and they were unlucky to lose.
“They played very well in the first half and could have been a couple of goals ahead.
“If they play like that again we will have a really tough night on our hands.”
Teenage goalkeeper Stuart Black, who saved a penalty in Saturday’s 4-0 win over Montrose, could again be between the sticks as on-loan Raith Rovers shot-stopper Ross Laidlaw is struggling with a shoulder injury.
Berwick will look to bounce back from the disappointment of losing 2-1 to Queen’s Park in a game in which the Borderers were the better side for long spells.
However, they left pointless thanks to Paul Woods’ late goal with player-manager Colin Cameron and his squad rueing a host of missed chances.
Cameron said: “Elgin will be looking to build on their good win at the weekend but if my players show the same commitment they have been recently and just a bit more ruthlessness in front of goal then we will do well.”
