Stirling Albion manager Dave Mackay was delighted with the performance of his side in Saturday’s 3-1 win over Elgin City at Forthbank.
A Darren Smith double and a Peter MacDonald goal earned us an important three points, with Jordan Allan netting for the visitors late on.
Mackay said: “That was much more like us – I thought we did very well in the game apart from maybe a 10-minute spell after our first goal. It was disappointing to lose a goal to a deflection near the end but that was probably the only way they were going to score.
“It’s a big win for us against one of our direct rivals and hopefully we can start looking up the way now. That’s two wins in a row and I don’t see any reason why we can’t keep that going.
“It’s a great achievement for Darren Smith to have reached 20 goals in the league and it was two great finishes – his all-round performance was excellent.”
Elgin City boss Gavin Price said: “I think probably the right team won – I don’t think there was a lot in the game in terms of possession but they got their goals at good times.
“We’ve got some young players and they will learn from today – the centre-halves had a different challenge playing against Peter MacDonald.”
