Stirling Albion ace Mark Lamont thinks the Binos showed what they are made of in their League Two victory over Elgin.

The tie was the only one in the division to go ahead as Storm Desmond took hold across the country, and the Albion winger says the conditions did not make life easy for them.

He believes they showed real fighting spirit to battle back from a goal down to take all three points from a wet and windy Forthbank.

Lamont told Advertiser Sport: “It was terrible out there. It was one of those games which was all about desire. It was hard to get the ball down and play the way we wanted to, although with the wind behind us we managed to do it a bit more in the second half. The first half was a battle, but we showed good fight within the team to come back from a goal down. It was a great win in difficult conditions.”

The former St Mirren man got the comeback up and running with his first goal for the club and although he is keeping his feet firmly on the ground, he believes the Binos can launch a title challenge.

He said: “It is nice to get my first goal. It's about time I scored because I have played a few games now. I have always tried to keep myself grounded and focused on the next game. We have to make sure we all perform in the next game and get the result we need. It's all been positive recently and I hope we can take that into the coming games and mount a challenge for the league, because that is what we want.”

Lamont revealed he has already been in discussions with manager Stuart McLaren over an extension to his contract, which runs out in January.

He added: “I have spoken to the manager and we are both keen for me to stay. We will talk again and try to figure something out and keep me here for the rest of the season. I am happy here and happy with the way we are playing. There is great unity and that makes being here so much better.”
