Stirling Albion manager Dave Mackay admits his side failed to trouble Edinburgh City as a forgettable encounter ended in a 1-0 defeat in the capital.
Derek Riordan fired home from 20 yards in the last minute to earn City a third straight win in their final fixture at Meadowbank Stadium before a three-year groundshare with Spartans at Ainslie Park, as our slim play-off hopes were ended.
Mackay said: “We didn’t do enough to win the game. The goal was the only real bit of quality and just about the only shot on target. It was a poor game on a horrible pitch – dry and bobbly – and our decision making all over the park was very poor.
“We gave ourselves an opportunity to do something in terms of the play-offs after a good run but we haven’t done well enough in the last few weeks.
“Over the course of the season we are probably where we deserve to be in the table and we have a lot of rebuilding to do over the summer.”
Edinburgh City boss Gary Jardine said: “We wanted to sign off on a high in our last game here and that’s why we pushed so many bodies forward at the end.
“We got lucky with the ball falling to Derek Riordan because he is probably the only player on the park who could have scored that goal – it was a fantastic finish.”
