Andrew Cleary fires home our equaliser. The striker would however not see out the game.

Brook Street opened up a two point lead at the top of the table with a 4-2 win over Stirling Bridge at New Home Park this afternoon, and while coach Leoš Loos  was happy with the result, he was less than happy with the standard of defending.

At the post match press conference he said, “We gave them a goal of a start, then let them back into the game when we should have been looking to close the game off. We can’t afford to be so slack at the back and expect to win against the top teams. If we play like that next weekend we could be in trouble.

He continued, “When we did the ‘good stuff’, we did very well, but there is certainly room for improvement as far as the ‘bad stuff’ is concerned. Yet again we conceded goals that on another day could have cost us dearly. We’ve got to tighten up at the back, it’s as simple as that”.

He added, “To be fair, it wasn’t the greatest conditions and mistakes will happen, but can’t expect to pick up points away from home if we defend like that. We must be more aware in defence and I can’t stress that enough”.

Of further concern to the coach however was the injury sustained by Andrew Cleary.

“Andrew picked up a knock and we’ll just have to wait and see how it responds to treatment this week. At the moment though, I’d have to say he’s doubtful for next weekend”.

He continued, “He’s usually a quick healer so we’ll certainly have our fingers crossed that he’ll be ok”.
