Stirling boss Greig McDonald felt his team were worthy of a point after a first-half goal from Rory McAllister earned Peterhead a 1-0 win in a game of few chances at Forthbank on Saturday.
Neither keeper had much to do but McAllister bagged his 20th goal of the season late in the first half to give the Blue Toon a fifth straight victory, dropping us to eighth place in the process.
McDonald said: “The first goal was always going to be crucial but I’m not going to stand here and criticise my players – they have been magnificent over the last couple of months. We have only lost twice in 14 matches, to a late deflected free-kick at Berwick and to a bit of class from Rory McAllister.
“I felt we deserved a draw although we didn’t play as well as we can and quality was lacking in the final third. We finished the game with three strikers and two wingers but credit to Peterhead for keeping another clean sheet.”
Peterhead manager Jim McInally said: “I felt it was about staying organised and making sure we didn’t concede – when you have Rory McAllister in your team there is every chance you can get a goal, especially with the form he is in.”
