Elgin reaction

Stirling Albion boss Dave Mackay was understandably delighted after Sean Dickson’s injury-time winner saw us beat Elgin City 1-0 at Forthbank on Tuesday evening.

It means Albion are 11 points clear of bottom club Cowdenbeath, who have two games in hand, ahead of Saturday’s trip to Central Park.

Mackay said: “We’ve scored a lot of late goals since I came here and it’s a credit to the players that they kept going to the final whistle. Sean Dickson is a threat and he’s better suited to that role behind the strikers rather than in a central two.

“We have breathing space now and we have absolutely no worries about relegation if we play like that. We’ve had too many draws so it’s great to get all three points – I thought we deserved it.”

Elgin City manager Jim Weir said: “I think a draw would have been a fair result overall but Stirling wanted it more and they got their reward at the end.

“They were up for it from the start and I think losing Shane Sutherland has affected us. We were very poor in the first half and didn’t really create any chances.

“I thought we had a stonewall penalty when Darryl McHardy was fouled in the box in the second half. I don’t know how the referee didn’t give it.”
