Stirling Albion boss Dave Mackay admitted it was a disappointing display at Berwick as a 1-0 defeat ended our unbeaten away record.
Michael McKenna’s early goal was the difference between the teams but we have the chance to go top of the table when we host Peterhead at Forthbank on Tuesday.
Mackay said: “Their goalkeeper had a couple of good saves but we didn’t work him enough and we were poor in the final third. It’s a game we could have got a draw out of and Cammy Binnie didn’t have many saves to make but we certainly didn’t play as we can do.
“Berwick played well coming off the back of a 5-1 defeat and we started the game very slowly. We need to start better and show a bit more composure.”
Berwick Rangers manager Robbie Horn said: “We rode our luck a couple of times in the first half and Robby McCrorie made a tremendous double save but to a man I thought the players were outstanding.
“There was an acceptance to the defeat against Elgin and that had to change. The back three were immense and I’m delighted with the effort and the team spirit. I just felt we wanted it a wee bit more – we dug in and we were throwing our bodies in front of things.”
