Stuart McLaren was pleased with his side's display as they played out an entertaining draw with fellow promotion-chasers Queen's Park last Saturday.

The Binos had opportunities to turn one point into three but despite failing to do so, the manager was relatively happy with what he saw from his players.

McLaren told Stirling News Sport: “It was an end-to-end game which showed the intent of both teams. I was really pleased with the approach that we took and although there were not a lot of clear-cut chances in the game I thought the better chances came our way.

"You would maybe expect Ross Smith to score but the keeper has read it really well, and then he has a header off the underside of the bar.”

McLaren revealed that stand-in skipper Willie Robertson had suffered a calf injury but is expecting the combative midfielder to be able to take his place in the side to face Montrose this weekend.

He said: “Willie has been scanned and there is a very slight tear. He went into a challenge and felt it tighten up so it was a precaution so as not to make it any worse.

"We will get him some treatment through the week and I'd expect him to be fit for the Montrose game, but if we had played him any longer he could have been out for a few weeks.”
