Annan match reaction

Stirling Albion boss Greig McDonald felt some key decisions went against the Binos when we lost 5-2 to Annan at Galabank on Saturday.

Goalkeeper Sam Filler was dismissed for bringing down Kieran McGachie then defender Gary Thom saw red for a tackle on the same player before McDonald was sent to the stand early in the second half.

He said: “I obviously have to be careful what I say here, however I, and no doubt all of our supporters who were at the game on Saturday, felt very aggrieved at some of the decisions that went against us, in particular Gary Thom’s sending off.

“My sympathies go to the supporters who paid good money and travelled all that way for a game that was ultimately ruined by the officials.

“In terms of the positives, I can’t speak highly enough of the players’ attitude and determination when we were down to nine men. To score twice and create as much as we did is a credit to the guys – if they can do that with 11 men on the park then we’ll win more games than we’ll lose.

“Finally, I would like to acknowledge our current league position is unacceptable but please be assured that myself, Marc (McCulloch), Shaun (Fagan) and the players are working extremely hard to turn this around and your continued support is very much appreciated.”
