Stirling Albion boss Dave Mackay was unhappy with his side’s defending in the 4-3 defeat to Peterhead at a very blustery Balmoor.
It was 2-2 at half-time and we had the conditions in our favour after the break but it was the Blue Toon who claimed all three points with a second-half brace from sub Russell McLean.
Darren Smith’s double took his tally to 20 goals for the season but the defeat drops us to fifth in the table as Peterhead made it seven straight league wins.
Mackay said: “We conceded four very poor goals on the day, although they might say the same with goals they conceded. The game was played in farcical conditions and they just handled it slightly better than us – it almost became a lottery and it was who could make the least mistakes.
“We won the toss and chose to play against the wind in the first half and it looked like it had worked given that we went in 2-2 but we let ourselves down by conceding two sloppy goals.”
Peterhead boss Jim McInally told their club website: “That is probably our best three points of the season. At half-time, Stirling might have thought the game was in the bag because that is probably as bad as the wind has been this season.
“But sometimes it is as hard to play with the wind as against it and we knew at half-time we were still good enough, if we could get into advanced positions, to create chances.”
