Stirling v Annan match reaction

Binos boss Greig McDonald was understandably delighted that the improved run of form continued with an excellent display in Tuesday night’s 2-1 home win over Annan.

The visitors took an early lead through Scott Chaplain but Graham Weir soon equalised and Jordan White hit the winner with his 10th goal of the season in the 50th minute.

McDonald said: “We scored two goals and created three or four really good chances on top of that. Their goal was a bit of a gift from us and I thought we were good value for the win.

“Within 30 seconds of going behind we had the ball in the net, albeit it was ruled out, and we were level within five minutes, which shows the character of the boys.

“We brought in Sandy Cunningham for his debut (first start) at 17 and I thought he was different class – we rested Kieran McAnespie who was probably our best player at Peterhead at the weekend.

“We’ll have to make changes again for Clyde on Saturday because a few boys have picked up knocks but we’ll see how everyone is at training on Thursday night.”

Annan manager Jim Chapman said: “Every mistake we make at the moment is getting punished and we are probably not getting the results our performances deserve. I feel for the players because they put a lot into the game – we are in a rut but one victory can change everything.”
