Binos boss Dave Mackay hailed his side after they produced a stunning first-half display in our 4-2 win over title favourites Peterhead at Balmoor on Saturday.
Paul Cairney gave the Blue Toon an early lead but four goals in an incredible 18-minute spell from Darren Smith (2), Callumn Morrison and Ross Kavanagh earned us a fourth straight league win, although Rory McAllister pulled one back from the spot in the second half.
Stirling Albion and Aberdeen are the only two teams across the SPFL with 100% records after four games and Mackay said: “We didn’t get going at the start and conceded a poor goal but the response from then up until half-time was easily the best in my time at the club.
“The half-time whistle came at the wrong time because we were cutting them open at will and looked a threat every time we went forward. We didn’t hit the same heights in the second half but we had done enough to see the game out comfortably.
“We went up there to win the game because I knew we were capable of doing that. There was no panic when we conceded because we have plenty goals in this team.
“It’s early days and I would rather have a game next weekend but we’ll look forward to the Clyde match in a fortnight and hope to keep the good run going.”
Peterhead manager Jim McInally, whose side have now won twice and lost twice, said: “We defended really poorly and made individual errors – there are no excuses. The players couldn’t get to grips with Stirling in the first half but at least they fought in the second half.”
