Stirling Albion boss Stuart McLaren was left frustrated after two goals in the space of three minutes in the final quarter of the game earned Peterhead a 2-1 victory.
Craig Wedderburn fired us ahead before the break and Sandy Cunningham was denied by the woodwork early in the second period before Rory McAllister equalised from the spot and Jamie Stevenson grabbed the winner.
McLaren said: “It’s disappointing because we were in a winning position – it’s fine margins again and if Sandy scores we probably go on and win the game.
“I wasn’t convinced by the penalty decision and I had a chat with the referee after the game. He saw it differently and that’s the way it goes sometimes.
“For the second goal, it was down to bad decision-making on our part. Young Angus Beith, who has been outstanding since he joined us, tried to play a pass when it was a bit tight and they took full advantage.”
Peterhead manager Jim McInally said: “I felt that Stirling were more enthusiastic than us in the first half but when we got the break with them hitting the post at 1-0 I felt it could be a big turning point in the game.
“It’s a fantastic result but I’m not kidding myself – we got a bit of luck to get it.”
