Stirling Albion manager Stuart McLaren was frustrated his side failed to build on a bright start as Airdrieonians claimed a 2-0 victory at Forthbank on Saturday.
A pair of second-half penalties from Bryan Prunty left us on the brink of relegation and kept the Diamonds within three points of the play-offs.
McLaren said: “It was another reflection of our season – we started the game well enough but we are a little bit fragile and we didn’t react well to going behind.
“I thought the penalty decisions were questionable, and you saw the reaction of the players to the second one, but these things happen.
“Airdrie are a good team and you can see why they have got the results they have done in the last few months.”
Airdrieonians boss Gary Bollan said: “I’m delighted with the win – it keeps us in the hunt for fourth place. I felt we were a bit flat in the first half but we made changes that benefited us and we started the second half at a much better tempo.
“I think they were both penalties. Bryan Prunty was under pressure to put them away but he is a goalscorer and I was confident he would score.”
