Stirling Albion manager Dave Mackay was left frustrated as Elgin City hit back for a 2-2 draw at Forthbank on Saturday as our lead at the top of Ladbrokes League 2 was cut to four points.
Darren Smith’s first-half double, taking his tally to 11 goals, had us in control at the break but Chris McLeish and Jordan Allan struck for the visitors after the interval.
Mackay said: “It is two points chucked away. If you are 2-0 up at home you should be winning the game. It feels like a defeat and we were hanging on a bit at the end for the draw.
“With the way we play we are going to give the opposition chances but we are conceding far too many and that has to change. You have to defend better than that. It’s still a good start to the season but it could have been ever better if we hadn’t lost some cheap points at home.”
Elgin City boss Jim Weir said: “We had words at half-time and the second-half performance is what I need from my team. We deserved something out of the game and I thought we could have had more.
“I’d need to see it again but their second goal looked offside and we were denied a stonewall penalty in the second half.”
