Forfar reaction

Stirling Albion manager Dave Mackay was delighted with the performance in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Forfar at Station Park but was frustrated not to have won.

Darren Smith’s opener was cancelled out by David Cox after on-loan Angus Beith missed a penalty and we had other chances to make it two victories out of two in 2017.

He said: “To go away from home to the league leaders and play so well and still only come away with one point is a little bit disappointing. That shows the progress we are making. The players we have brought in have made a difference – sometimes you just need to freshen things up at a club.

“We looked solid again and that is pleasing because we have been conceding too many goals since I came to the club and also before that. Overall, I thought we had the better chances.

“With regards to the penalty, it was meant to be Dylan Bikey who was hitting them and I spoke to him at half-time but I can’t be too harsh on Angus Beith because I missed a few in my time.”

Forfar boss Gary Bollan said: “Stirling are the most improved team in the league and Dave Mackay has put together a good side who will be very hard to beat.”
