Berwick reaction

Stirling Albion caretaker boss Martyn Corrigan was delighted with the effort put in by the players in Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Berwick Rangers at Forthbank.

It was the first time since last October that we have managed back-to-back clean sheets in the league but we were unable to break down the meanest defence in the division.

He said: “The boys worked really hard and I think only one team looked like they were going to score. We didn’t feel under pressure at any time and the shape of the team was good. We defended well – that’s two clean sheets in a row in the league now and we got another one in a friendly last week.

“We maybe just didn’t get the rub of the green today. Eddie Ferns had a good chance and there were one or two others. The boys are disappointed not to have won.”

Berwick manager John Coughlin said: “It’s a big result for us because we have been under the cosh recently with injuries and suspensions. Stirling have a very good squad and they are obviously trying to get Martyn the job.

“There were two penalty claims and in my opinion they were both penalties. Their boy slid but that doesn’t matter – Kevin (McKinlay) was taken out the game – then Blair (Henderson) gets battered in the back.”
