Stirling Albion boss Dave Mackay was an angry man after we exited the Scottish Cup with a 3-2 defeat away to Clyde at Broadwood in Tuesday’s fourth-round replay.
Blair Henderson converted an early penalty and scored a second from the spot late on after keeper John Gibson had been sent off but Clyde were much the better team and face Ayr United in the last 16 thanks to a David Gormley hat-trick.
Mackay said: “The first half performance was diabolical and the goals we are giving away are laughable – it’s just nowhere near good enough.
“If we had got the goal at the end to take the game to extra time it would have papered over the cracks, although at least we showed something in the second half.
“We are in a precarious position in the league and if we perform like we did in the second half at Annan and the first half against Clyde we are in danger of going down.
“There’s probably two guys you would give pass marks to – Blair Henderson did well and Sean Dickson came on at half-time and gave us energy.”
Clyde manager Barry Ferguson said: “We have been going through a difficult time but we were magnificent in the first half and we thoroughly deserved to go through.
“I’m delighted for David Gormley because he has been getting a bit of stick (from the fans) but I thought he was different class.”
