PLEASED . . . Annan manager Peter Murphy watched his side net three without reply against Stirling Albion

A Tommy Goss brace and an effort from Dominic Docherty sealed the win over last season’s League Two title winners.

Black and Golds’ boss Peter Murphy was pleased with the performance, which saw his side move into seventh in the third tier, and the manager admitted he would have been aggrieved if the Binos had managed to take anything from the game.

Murphy said: “It was a very pleasing performance and we could have had more goals after hitting the post, the bar, plus Tommy Goss had a penalty kick saved by Stirling keeper Blair Currie.

“We really should have had another penalty kick when there was a blatant hand ball, which we never got. If we had lost the game or even drawn we would have been very aggrieved. But we won and have the points so it’s not something we will make a fuss about.”

Tomorrow afternoon marks the last game in a home triple header as Alloa Athletic visit Galabank.

Murphy added: “We now want to take that kind of performance into the next game against Alloa.

“It will be a tough one because they are a big, strong team, a bit like Peterhead, and will be a lot more physical than Stirling.”

The manager also gave an update on the injury front, saying: “It was good to get Matty Douglas back but on the downside we have a bit of an injury to Josh Dixon who has a knee issue. He has fluid on the knee and it is the same knee that he has had a few operations on so we will have to wait and see about him.
