Stirling Albion boss Stuart McLaren has backed his side to respond positively to Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to new Ladbrokes League 2 leaders East Fife at Bayview.
Kevin Smith came off the bench to head the winner with 18 minutes left as we dropped out of the top four but we have a chance to make amends when Clyde visit Forthbank in a rearranged game on Tuesday night.
McLaren said: “It’s a disappointing outcome but when you get a setback like that it’s not terminal – there are still plenty of games left.
“The conditions were difficult for both teams and I didn’t think there was much in the game. It always looked like a mistake or a bit of quality would make the difference but unfortunately we weren’t able to engineer that moment in an attacking sense. They had a few chances but most of them came after they scored the goal.”
East Fife manager Gary Naysmith said: “We did OK in the first half but the second half was much better when the wind was more in our favour – we certainly deserved the win. We might be top now and we’ll enjoy tonight but I’m already thinking about our next game against Queen’s Park.”
