Stirling v Berwick match reaction

Stirling player/manager Greig McDonald hopes his side can build on Saturday’s 6-3 win over Berwick Rangers when Peterhead visit Forthbank on Saturday.

A double from Jordan White, one from the penalty spot, and goals from Stephen Day, Gary Thom, Mark Ferry and sub Steven Weir, ended our run of five straight defeats.

McDonald said: “I have always believed in the players and, although one swallow doesn’t make a summer, I think this is a big step forward and the guys are determined to get more points on the board.

“It was good to give the fans something to cheer about and if we all stick together I’m sure we can start climbing the table. We know we have not done well enough this season but the players were different class against Berwick.

“They pegged us back a couple of times but we just went back up the park and scored another goal. We were unlucky against Queen’s Park recently and played well at Ibrox and I had a feeling something was going to change.”

Berwick boss Ian Little said: “We did some good things going forward but defensively our performance was unacceptable. I felt the penalty decision was harsh because I don’t think the player had his hands up. They also might have had a man sent off for a second yellow card, but overall we didn’t do enough.”
