Stirling Albion manager Stuart McLaren was pleased to be able to send the fans home happy after his side's victory over Annan in their final home game of the season.

Goals from Moses Olanrewaju and Ross Kavanagh sealed three points for the Binos, and the manager was delighted with his players' display.

McLaren told Stirling News Sport: “Over the course of the season we have left the fans disappointed so it is some small consolation to send them home with a result like that. I was very comfortable with how we played, particularly in the first half. I thought we were excellent. We passed the ball well at the right times and looked solid defensively.”

“Credit must go to the boys because we are not going to be in the playoffs, so we had to look for other motivations and as much as you are looking for performances with a bit of quality, you need to work really hard and the boys did that all the way through. We never felt under massive pressure.”

McLaren admitted he is still hurting at missing out on the promotion playoffs but says Albion will learn from this season and return stronger in 2016/17.

He said: “We can look back at so many games from each of the four quarters and think what might have been. If we were to single out one thing it would be that we simply haven't scored enough goals at the right times. We will learn lessons from it and we will try our best to rectify it for next year.”

McLaren said: “We have a duty to the integrity of the competition to give everything in the last two games, and I assured Jim that we will do everything we can to go and beat Clyde next week. We will get the boys working as hard as they possibly can and we will do all we can to beat Clyde. It is only fair to the league, and now that we have gone five games unbeaten, we want to make sure we finish the season with six. We want to finish the season the way we mean to start the next one.
