Albion notched up a fourth straight home victory to climb to second place in League 2, with Clyde’s late winner against Annan denying us top spot.
Jordan White’s 10th goal of the season was cancelled out early in the second half by Lee Currie but a Steve Notman own goal and a terrific finish from Ross Forsyth saw us collect a valuable victory in a match that was due to be played on Saturday but was postponed due to Scottish Cup ties.
Binos boss Greig McDonald made one change to the team beaten 3-2 at Alloa, with Graham Weir replacing the suspended Sandy Cunningham. There was a place on the bench for U19 player Blair Munn and he made his first-team debut as a late substitute.
Albion continued their recent run of scoring early when White pounced in eight minutes after a blunder from the Berwick defence saw on-loan Hibs keeper Paul Grant about to be beaten by an own goal until White applied the final touch.
The equaliser came two minutes after the break when Currie, who scored several times against Stirling last season, lashed a superb shot into the corner from the edge of the box as Ian Little’s men started the second half strongly.
However, we were back in front in 51 minutes when Weir’s attempt was blocked by Grant but the ball ended up in the net via the unlucky Notman.
Forsyth hammered home the third goal at the end of a fine move in 63 minutes after a Danny Ashe cross had been nodded into his path.
Berwick, who have won just once away from home, are down to ninth in the table while we have now lost only twice in our last 11 league and cup outings.
