Comrie believes Stirling has what it takes to make the play-offs


The highlight without a doubt from yesterday’s 2-2 draw in the League Two match between Stirling Albion and Queens Park was Bino’s youngster Craig Comrie scoring a goal from all off forty-five-yards.

The goal which came just before the hour mark came directly from a free kick and looked too many in the stands to have being a fluke, but Comrie says he meant it.

He said: “When I was lining up for it I seen the goalkeeper off his line. He keeps a high line that goalie, it was kind of meant for Ferry (Mark Ferry) running through but I knew it would carry through with the wind so it was just one of those things, sometimes they go in.”

The ex-Bairn only recently signed for Albion in January this year after being released by former club Falkirk at the end of last year. The youngster who is from Stirling has impressed the faithful at Forthbank with some stand out performance and he made an instant impact when he scored with his first touch in his debut against East Stirlingshire.

Comrie added: “It looked like he was backtracking (Lucas Birntstingl) and he might have got it, I knew the way I had hit it, he would have to backtrack a bit more than he did, it was good for me to score from that position. It’s good to get back on the score sheet again.”

The nineteen-year-old is enjoying his first taste of first team football at Stirling and believes his side has what it takes to secure promotion.

“I am really enjoying it here, it’s a good change for me having come from Falkirk. The boys are great, the managers great. It’s good to just get back playing, playing every week. I’ll do my best for the team and hopefully we can put a run together and get right up there at the end of the season.”

However Comrie believes if his side are to make sure of securing a play-off place then they will have to improve their first-half performances with Albion only having scored two first-half goals so far in 2014.

“We can’t keep giving up goals and giving ourselves mountains to climb. We need to be a lot sharper in the first-half and if we pick up in the first-half then we can start taking the lead and not being in a position where we need to claw the game back. We have shown we have the desire to win games.

“Seconds in football will kill you. Queens Park are a good team and they showed that today and they will kill us and other teams will kill us if we continue to switch off. But if we can bring forward our second-half performance into the first-half then I’ve no doubt we will be up there come the end of the season.”
