Stirling Albion boss Stuart McLaren was very unhappy with his side’s performance in the 1-1 draw with bottom club Edinburgh City at Forthbank on Saturday.
Skipper Ross McMillan headed us in front after 55 minutes but Ross Allum equalised with a terrific finish six minutes from the end as City picked up their first point of the season.
McLaren said: “We had a good discussion after the game but I’m quite angry because the players are capable of much, much better – we didn’t do the fundamentals of the game well enough.
“I’m critical of the boys but, that said, if we had taken our chances we would have won the game. There were probably four or five in the first half and a couple in the second half.
“It’s very frustrating because it’s two points dropped and we needed them. There’s a long way to go but it will be a real test of our mettle at Forfar on Saturday.”
Edinburgh City manager Gary Jardine said: “It says a lot about the character of the players that they produced probably their best performance of the season after nine defeats in a row. We changed our shape a bit today and Ross Allum had a really tough job up front but it was a great finish for the goal.
“I’ve looked up and down the country in Scotland and England and there was no-one else without a point so I’m delighted to get it!”
