Binos boss Greig McDonald wasn’t too downhearted after Saturday’s 3-0 defeat to Falkirk in the Ramsdens Cup and felt there were positives for his side to build on.
He said: “This was the toughest tie we could have got and I have a great deal of respect for the way Falkirk play the game but I thought for large periods of the game we defended excellently. When you look at the goals in isolation, they were down to three mistakes.
“The guys stuck to their task and we had a few chances ourselves. We had several players out and this was good experience for our younger players – I hope it will stand them in good stead.”
Falkirk manager Steven Pressley said: “Stirling set their stall out to frustrate us and it was always going to take a patient performance. They made life difficult but I would describe our performance as very professional. These are difficult games and you saw that with some of the other results.”
