Cowdenbeath reaction

Stirling Albion boss Dave Mackay is hoping to have new faces in place before our next game against Clyde at Forthbank on Saturday.

The 2-1 home defeat to Cowdenbeath on Hogmanay means we are above bottom club Berwick Rangers only on goal difference at the halfway stage of the Ladbrokes League 2 campaign.

He said: “There has to be changes and I’ll be trying to do that as quickly as possible. We need reinforcements and I’d imagine that four or five players have to come in.

“The chairman has said there is money there and I have a couple lined up. Willie Robertson will sign this week and I see him making a big improvement to us. I’m also looking at another midfielder and a defender who I believe will make a difference.

“Saturday’s performance was nowhere near good enough. The goals we lost were laughable and we didn’t even do the basics of the game. We didn’t win any second balls and we were bullied at times. Things need to change.”

Cowdenbeath manager Liam Fox said: “I thought the performance was very, very good. It was a massive game for us – we looked at the league table after losing to Arbroath last week and it was not a nice feeling to be bottom but the players stepped up to the plate. The character we showed after they equalised was different class.”
