Sport| Stirling Albion 1- 2 Peterhead| Report

Stirling Albion were beaten 1-2 by league leaders Peterhead on a wet and windy Saturday afternoon.

The Binos were looking to turn the form from their previous 3 games after a defeat and 2 draws, in order to maintain their playoff spot. However they faced tough opposition in the league leaders, Peterhead.

Stirling did not get off to the start that they would have wanted, as Peterhead started started the much stronger team. They finally managed to capitalize on this after when a mistake by Stirling defender Danny Ashe put Rory McAllister through on goal and he then round the keeper and slotted the ball away. Stirling looked poor in the first half, with striker Jordan White looking isolated for the majority of the half.

The second half was a much better story for Stirling, Jordan White scored 9 minutes into the half with a header from a Craig Comrie corner. Both teams then had chance in which they could have took the lead but the deadlock was broken when substitute Fraser McLaren scored in less than a minute coming on the pitch.

The conditions definitely did not help the quality of football, firstly the strong wind affected any aerial passes, and the wet pitch made passes along the ground extremely difficult.

This result put the Binos down to sixth and they will need a change in form if they want to regain a playoff spot, whereas Peterhead stayed atop of the league.
