Stirling Albion boss Greig McDonald could barely believe his side failed to beat Elgin as we missed two penalties and squandered a host of clear-cut chances in a 2-2 draw at Forthbank on Saturday.
Jordan White’s 17th goal of the season and Craig Comrie’s late leveller earned us a point after City had twice led through Shane Sutherland and Craig Gunn on a day when White and Ross Forsyth both failed from the spot.
We now need four points from the two remaining games against Peterhead away and Clyde at home to be sure of claiming a play-off place.
McDonald said: “If it was a boxing match it would have been stopped. I don’t think I have seen us create as many chances in a game.
“We played some great stuff but we’ve missed two penalties, open goals and one-on-ones – it was just one of those days.
“The guys gave it everything because they knew they had to get something from the game and on another day we would have won handsomely.
“We lost two poor goals but it’s still in our hands in terms of the play-offs and we will go to Peterhead in confident mood.”
Elgin City manager Barry Wilson said: “I thought the first half was quite even and Craig Gunn missed a great chance to put us 2-0 up but in the second half Stirling Albion did a lot of attacking.
“They played really well and my boys were out on their feet. It looked what it was – which was a team with something to play for against a team that doesn’t.
“We haven’t had many breaks since I came to the club but we got a few today with them missing two penalties and some big chances so I’m delighted with a point.”
