Edinburgh City Prediction

Edinburgh’s recent four match revival was ended on Saturday when they lost 1-0 away at 2nd placed Clyde which has resulted in the hosts dropping down to 3rd place ahead of their clash with Berwick Rangers on Tuesday night.

Recent wins over Albion Rovers 3-1 and a 2-0 home win over Cowdenbeath have helped them to keep in touch with League Two leaders Peterhead though as they’re just five points adrift of them, and all three points in Tuesday night’s game would see them leapfrog Clyde into 2nd place and just two points behind Peterhead.

Something in Edinburgh’s favour is the fact that they possess the second best defensive record at home in the division (behind only to Peterhead), as the hosts have kept five clean sheets within an overall record of 9-1-3 26/9.

However, recent times have seen the hosts wobble a wee bit as they’ve suffered recent defeats to Stirling Albion and Annan Athletic, but they did manage to bounce back with a 2-0 win over Cowdenbeath last time out on home soil.

7 of Edinburgh City’s 13 home matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals, while top scorer is Henderson with 24 goals to date this season.


Key-Facts – Edinburgh City v Berwick Rangers

  • Edinburgh City possess the second highest goal tally at home
  • Berwick Rangers are without a win from their last 12 league matches
  • Berwick Rangers have conceded 2 goals or more in 10 of their 13 away matches


Berwick Rangers Prediction

Berwick Rangers hold the distinction of being the only English team that plays in the Scottish leagues as the Berwick-upon-Tweed outfit are actually situated in Northumberland. The visitors are experiencing a poor run of results as they’ve failed to win any of their last 12 matches overall in the Scottish League Two, and they sit second from bottom in the division as a result.

Berwick have lost 9 of these last 12 matches which includes heavy defeats to Peterhead 5-0, Annan Athletic 4-0, Clyde 3-0, Queen’s Park 7-1 and a 3-0 loss to Elgin City. Their away record reads a poor 2-2-9 14/36 and they possess the worst defensive record away from home in the division.

As well as failing to keep a single clean sheet on their travels, Berwick have conceded 2 goals or more in 10 of their 13 away matches so far this season, so we could be in for more goals on Tuesday night.

Betting Tips Verdict

Edinburgh will be keen to bounce back from their defeat to Clyde on the weekend and Berwick Rangers may well be the whipping-boys again this evening.
