Stirling Albion manager Dave Mackay believes there is more to come from his players despite the 4-0 win over Berwick Rangers at Forthbank on Saturday.
A Darren Smith double helped us rack up our biggest win since a 7-0 victory against Montrose at Forthbank in February 2016. We now face Montrose in the IRN-BRU Cup on Tuesday night and Edinburgh City in Ladbrokes League 2 next weekend – both of them at home.
Mackay, who confirmed that Sean Dickson missed out on Saturday with a hip injury, said: “It was a good result in the end but I still feel we can get better at times. We were a wee bit sloppy in the second half when we took our foot off the gas but you have to be pleased with four goals and a clean sheet.
“We have given ourselves a great start but we want to build on it. It was a great goal from Darren Smith for the opener but it all came about with the work Ross Kavanagh did to win the ball back.
“We’ll freshen things up for Montrose on Tuesday – it is a game we want to win but we managed change things in the Betfred Cup and still win games.”
Berwick boss John Coughlin said: “I thought Stirling were bang at it and we were very flat after the first goal, which was a World Cup goal from Darren Smith.
“I was disappointed with the way we failed to compete – they showed more hunger. We played some nice football and had some chances in the second half but didn’t really work their goalkeeper and we were too soft, which is why I made two changes at half-time.”
