Stirling Albion manager Greig McDonald admitted it was a case of winning ugly as Mark Ferry’s early goal proved enough to give the Binos a 1-0 win over Queen’s Park on Saturday.
Ferry struck inside three minutes at the Excelsior Stadium as we climbed to third place in League 2 but it was a forgettable 90 minutes that was largely devoid of goalmouth action.
McDonald said: “It was the sort of game that would get football stopped! The only difference between the sides is that we started brightly, which hasn’t been like us in the last few weeks to be honest.
“I’m pleased that Mark Ferry got another goal and I’m pleased that we got a clean sheet and three points but I’m disappointed in the way we played.
“However, the most important thing is that we won the match. That’s seven points from the last nine now and hopefully we can keep stringing results together.”
Interim Queen’s Park boss Richard Sinclair said: “I felt we did enough in the second half to deserve something from the game. We didn’t start well, and it was the same last week, but we got better and I also felt we should have had a penalty.”
