Queen’s Park Match Reaction

Stirling Albion manager Greig McDonald was frustrated his side failed to build on Josh Flood’s early goal as we went down 2-1 to Queen’s Park at Forthbank on Saturday.

Goals from James Brough and Jamie Longworth condemned us to a third straight defeat ahead of our next Third Division match away to East Stirling at Ochilview on September 15.

McDonald said: “We started very brightly and I thought we were the better side for an hour, but games last 90 minutes. I think the guys gave me more than (against Clyde) last week but confidence is fragile and we couldn’t get over the line.

“We’ve had a bad start to the season and individual players are not getting to the levels they need to be at. We fell out of the game but it’s not a fitness issue, it’s more about confidence.

“We just need to work hard in training over the next couple of weeks and come back for the East Stirling match and try to kick on from there and go on a run.”

Queen’s Park boss Gardner Speirs said: “I think we just about deserved to win the game in the end. We made one or two defensive mistakes and were sloppy in the middle of the park for an hour or so but we got better as the game went on.”
