Stirling v East Stirling match reaction

 Binos boss Greig McDonald felt his side should have taken all three points from Tuesday night’s local derby against East Stirlingshire, which ended in a 1-1 draw at Forthbank.

Graham Weir gave us the lead early in the second half but the visitors equalised a few minutes later when Kevin Turner converted a penalty after Stephen Day had upended Andy Stirling.

He said: “It’s disappointing that we didn’t hold on after taking the lead but we have no complaints about the penalty – it was a bit naive from young Stephen to make the tackle but he will learn from it.

“It’s two points dropped and it was frustrating. I thought we did enough to win the game and we threw men forward at the end but we didn’t take our chances – other than the penalty I think David Crawford only had one save.”

Shire boss John Coughlin said: “It wasn’t a great game and the state of the pitch didn’t help. We can certainly play better.”
