Stirling Albion boss Greig McDonald was content to pick up a point in difficult conditions as it ended 0-0 against Montrose at Links Park on Saturday.
He said: “Both sets of players deserve credit but on balance I thought we were the better team, without creating as many chances as we would have liked. We played some nice stuff and it was just our final pass that let us down at times.
“Defensively we were excellent and we are pleased with a clean sheet. David Crawford only had one save of note and that came from a 40 yard free-kick in the second half.
“Craig Comrie did very well on his full debut for the club and I thought new signing Darren Smith looked sharp when he came on.”
Montrose manager Stuart Garden said: “A point each was about right and it’s not a bad result. The wind totally spoiled the game and it makes you wonder if football should be played in these conditions.”
