Stirling Albion manager Dave Mackay was delighted to see his side make it five wins in a row with a 2-1 victory over in-form Clyde at Forthbank.
Goals from Darren Smith and Peter MacDonald saw us move four points clear in third place after Stenhousemuir lost at Annan.
Mackay said: “I thought we were excellent other than maybe a 10-minute spell towards the end of the first half when we were sitting a bit deep. Clyde started the second half well but once we got the second goal I felt we were in control and we always looked a threat going forward.
“The players are working really hard for each other and we have looked so much better defensively of late. The back four were excellent and gave us the platform to go on and win the game. We are eight points clear of Elgin in fifth, which is a big change from a few weeks ago.
“We’ve got Edinburgh City here on Tuesday and that will be a hard game because they are an improved side but there’s no reason why we can’t keep this run going.”
Clyde boss Danny Lennon said: “Both teams competed well and played good football at times – there were fine margins in the game. I was delighted with the way we reacted to losing the early goal but credit to Stirling for keeping their own run going.
“I thought the game could have gone either way but Stirling took their opportunities. I thought we started the second half in the ascendancy and we hit the post through Chris McStay and David Goodwillie also had a chance before Stirling scored their second goal.”
