Stirling Albion boss Stuart McLaren felt a draw was a fair result after it ended 0-0 against East Fife at Bayview in the William Hill Scottish Cup.
The second-round replay goes ahead at Forthbank on Tuesday November 3, with the winners going through to round three on Saturday November 28 while the losers will face a blank weekend.
McLaren said: “East Fife maybe shaded it in terms of clear-cut chances but overall I thought it was a fairly even game.
“It was good to get another clean sheet because the number of goals we conceded last season was the main reason for our problems.
“We know we need to still do more in terms of creating chances but we have two big games coming up now against East Stirlingshire on Saturday and East Fife in the cup next Tuesday and hopefully we can make home advantage count.”
On Willie Robertson’s red card, McLaren added: “I didn’t get a clear view because there were so many players in the way. Willie’s take is that their player was holding on to the ball and he was trying to get it back but the referee has seen it as a kick – it’s one I would like to see again on video.”
East Fife player/manager Gary Naysmith said: “We were the better team and on another day we would have scored three or four.”
