Stirling Albion manager Stuart McLaren was pleased to end the long wait for a home victory in League 1 as we beat Peterhead 2-1 on Saturday.
Rory McAllister’s deflected free-kick gave the Blue Toon an early lead at Forthbank but Lewis Coult equalised almost immediately with his first goal for the club and the ex-Airdrie striker set up on-loan Dunfermline midfielder Andy Stirling for a late winner.
McLaren said: “I’m delighted for the boys because it was a real team effort. I know Callum Reidford was man of the match and I was also pleased for Lewis to get his first goal. Ross McGeachie was outstanding at the back but we didn’t have a failure.
“We have created more chances in other games and lost but we have changed the formation recently and I think that has made us harder to score against.”
Peterhead boss Jim McInally said: “I can’t really believe we lost the game. I thought we dominated the second half but we hit the bar twice and their goalie made some great saves – it was just one of those days.
“I can’t fault the players – I’m maybe to blame because we didn’t want to settle for a draw and I changed things about which left us a bit exposed at the back and Stirling scored a terrific goal on the break.”
