Stirling Albion boss Dave Mackay praised the work ethic of his players after Tuesday’s 2-0 win over Brechin City in the Betfred Cup.
Penalties from Peter MacDonald and Liam Caddis earned us our second win in the space of four days as we finished with seven points in Group A.
Mackay said: “We maybe weren’t at our best on the ball but we worked extremely hard off it and when you do that you always have a chance.
“The goals might have come from penalties but it was good play that led to them and I also thought that we dealt well with a big, strong Brechin side. We’ve only conceded one goal in the last three games and that was an own goal with the last kick of the ball at Forfar.
“The reaction since the Falkirk game has been outstanding but I knew the boys had it in them. They are a great bunch and there is strength in depth there – they have given me a lot to think about in terms of team selection for the Stenhousemuir game next weekend.”
Brechin City boss Darren Dods said: “We didn’t start the game well and we failed to test their keeper in the first half. We were better in the second half and created plenty of chances but didn’t take them.
“You have to give Stirling credit because they defended well and hit us on the break. Callumn Morrison was a threat all night – you can see how Hearts rate him so highly.”
