Stirling Albion’s Willie Robertson was delighted with the Binos’ performance as they sealed their place in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup.

Albion negotiated the potential banana-skin of Cumbernauld Colts with minimum fuss as they hit their Lowland League opponents for six at Forthbank and the midfielder says they put in a workmanlike performance.

Robertson told Stirling News Sport: “It was a good result. It takes us into the next round and knowing we had drawn Inverness beforehand gave the boys a bit of a lift. It gave us a little extra incentive to get the result.

“The main thing was to get the result and take our place in the next round. Everybody has done well because sometimes when you play against lower league teams it is tough. Everybody did their jobs well.”

The Binos were handed a glamour tie against holders Inverness in the fourth round draw and the 22-year-old says they can spring a surprise on their top-flight opponents when they visit Forthbank in January.

He said: “It’s a great draw for us. At this stage everybody wants a Premiership team and to get the holders just shows what level we will need to be at, because they have won the cup. It’s a great chance for us to pull off a shock at home.”

Robertson has captained the side in recent weeks in the absence of Ross McMillan but says he is just focused on doing his job on the pitch and helping his side take all three points from Saturday’s League Two clash with Elgin.

He added: “It’s nice to be captain but you don’t really think about it. You always go out there and do your own job. My job is to be the captain if Ross is out and when that’s the case I’ll do it.

“The spirit is always good in the dressing room. Even though we got beaten by Queen’s Park we have done a lot better recently in terms of work-rate and keeping the ball. We will be looking to build on it on Saturday. We have to make sure we all do our jobs but we are just taking it game by game at the moment.”
