Stirling v Berwick reaction

Albion manager Greig McDonald praised his players for digging out a vital win as Mark Ferry’s 87th minute goal saw off Berwick Rangers 1-0 in a hard-fought encounter at Forthbank on Saturday.

The midfielder bagged his 10th goal of the season from a Scott Davidson cross as we recorded back-to-back league shut-outs for the first time since October 2010.

McDonald said: “It wasn’t pretty and it looked like it was going to be a draw but we knew we had to win the game so credit to the guys for grinding it out. It was a good move for the goal and Mark Ferry finished it really well.

“It’s a big week, with Queen’s Park and Montrose away coming up. We have done well to get in a position where people are even talking about the play-offs but we just need to try to keep winning games and see where it takes us.

“To lose just once in 11 matches, particularly when we have played Rangers twice in that period, says a lot about the players.”

Berwick boss Ian Little said: “We had good chances in the game and not taking them has cost us. Even coming away from home and getting a point would have been good so it’s disappointing to lose a goal so late on.”
