Stirling Albion boss Greig McDonald was disappointed at the loss of a late equaliser after we looked set for an opening-day victory at Peterhead.
Gordon Smith fired us in front 10 minutes into the second half but Rory McAllister latched on to a long ball to make it 1-1 with five minutes left.
McDonald said: “It’s disappointing not to have won but this is a hard place to come – Peterhead only lost once at home last season and that was against us.
“I thought we should have had a penalty in the first half and we scored a good goal through Gordon Smith – a draw was the least we deserved.
“Our defence kept Rory McAllister quiet for most of the game but we’ve been caught out by a long ball at the end and that has cost us.”
Peterhead manager Jim McInally said: “We didn’t play well and I thought it was a poor-quality game. We didn’t create very much and the only credit I can give the players is that they didn’t give up.
“I felt we deserved a point because Stirling weren’t much better than us but we need to do a lot better – we looked flat for some reason.”
