Binos boss Greig McDonald was thrilled with his side’s performance as we won 4-0 at Peterhead on the day they received the League 2 trophy.
A Craig Comrie double and goals from David Weatherston and Graham Weir ended the Blue Toon’s unbeaten home record as we notched up our biggest away league win since beating Dumbarton 5-1 in August 2011.
We need a point against Clyde at Forthbank next weekend to seal a play-off place, with Berwick Rangers, who face Peterhead at Shielfield, also still in contention.
McDonald said: “Congratulations to Peterhead, because they are deserving champions, but we came here with a point to prove.
“We played really well and that is 13 points from the last 15, which is great considering we have played Annan, Berwick and Peterhead during that run. We need to keep it going against Clyde next week to ensure we make the top four.”
Peterhead manager Jim McInally said: “The players were very disappointed about the result and the performance but I told them not to dwell on it – it is too good a day for that and I can’t be too harsh on them.
“Stirling Albion had everything to play for, so it was always going to be a tough fixture, but over the course of the season we are 18 points ahead of them.”
