STIRLING ALBION winger Mark Lamont believes the Binos were unlucky not to take all three points from their League Two meeting with Queen's Park.

The former St Mirren man thinks Albion's performance deserved more than a draw, but he says there are plenty of positives to build on for the rest of the season.

Lamont told Stirling News Sport: “Maybe a draw was a fair result but I thought we had enough chances to win the game. I thought we were probably the better team. We created enough chances and the keeper has made a few good saves. We were unlucky with a few shots.

“This was a game where we all chipped in and defended really well. Overall we are maybe a bit disappointed with the draw but it's not a defeat. We just need to try and kick on again and try and get more points over the rest of the season.”

The 22-year-old says the result can help the Binos build a challenge for the League Two title, but he insisted that their first objective is breaking into the top four for the first time this season.

He said: “We've got a good chance to pick up three points. We are back at home again and we need to kick on. Our incentive is to win the league and I think we can do that.

“In the position we are in just now, the playoffs are a realistic target, but if we get another good result and other teams drop points again we are right in there. The playoffs are the first step but our eyes are on the league.”

The Binos' cause was helped by teams around them dropping points, and Lamont says a repeat will see them force their way into the promotion mix.

He added: “It's good for us that other teams around us haven't won either. It would have been nice to get the win but we are a point closer to them. It gives us an incentive to go and catch them because it is very tight in this league.”
