Binos boss Stuart McLaren felt his side could have nicked all three points in a tight match with Queen’s Park which ended 0-0 at Forthbank.
He said: “It was an end-to-end game and both teams were going for the win – although there weren’t an awful lot of clear-cut chances, I thought the slightly better of them came our way.
“Ross Smith should maybe have scored in the first half – although the goalkeeper did well – but he was unlucky with the header that hit the bar in the second half. We defended well and it’s always good to get a clean sheet.”
McLaren hopes that skipper Willie Robertson will be fit to face Montrose at Forthbank on Saturday after being forced off early in the second half.
He said: “Willie felt something in his calf at the Inverness game and he has now had a scan which shows a very, very slight tear.
“He was OK to play but he felt it tighten up and that’s why we took him off. It was more of a precaution but we will get him some treatment during the week and I think he will be fit to play next week.”
Queen’s Park manager Gus MacPherson said: “It’s a game that could have gone either way – in my opinion that’s the two best goalkeepers in the league and they both had a couple of good saves.
“We were a bit wasteful in the final third but to go away from home to a team like Stirling, with the quality they have, and get a clean sheet is pleasing.”
