Albion manager Greig McDonald praised his players for digging in for the win against Clyde as first-half goals from Kieran McAnespie and Mark Ferry paved the way for a 2-0 success at Forthbank on Saturday.
The victory lifted us off the foot of the table ahead of Tuesday night’s match with Rangers and extended our unbeaten run to five matches.
The Binos boss said: “We started the game terrifically. It was a great first goal and the second before half-time gave us a bit of a comfort.
“In the second half we did something we have been on at the guys that we need to do in the Third Division – which is be horrible and be solid defensively. It wasn’t the greatest advert but the important thing was to get the points.
“The key thing is to keep going and get into the pack that is just ahead of us. We need to keep this mentality going. Tuesday’s game against Rangers will take care of itself but we made it clear to the players the Clyde match was more important.”
McDonald confirmed that a tweaked hamstring is likely to keep Graham Weir out of the Rangers game and young striker Sandy Cunningham is a doubt after injuring his arm in an accidental collision.
Clyde manager Jim Duffy said: “We made two basic errors in the first half and Stirling capitalised on that but, on the balance of play over the course of the game, I don’t think there was too much between the teams. We’re not playing with a great amount of confidence but everyone worked hard.”
