Albion Rovers boss pleased with points haul from Broomhill double-header, but knows it should have been more
Albion Rovers boss Sandy Clark admits he was pleased to take four points from their double-header with Broomhill last week, but feels they should have taken the maximum reward on offer.
The Wee Rovers were held to a 1-1 draw at Dumbarton Stadium last Tuesday night and followed that up with a strong 2-1 win at Cliftonhill at the weekend.
On Saturday, second half strikes from Alex McCaw and Dom McMahon earned all three points as Rovers fought off a late fightback from the visitors after Ben Chrystal’s 86th minute consolation.
Rovers have climbed to 12th spot in the Lowland League and Clark is happy enough with their points haul after two tough tests.
He said: “It has been a decent week for us.
“I was really pleased with the performance on Saturday. It was a physically hard game but I thought we handled Broomhill really well and scored two really good goals.
“When we lost a goal with five minutes to go we showed a bit of character to make sure that we didn’t drop any points.
“It was an all-round solid performance.
“We probably played better on the Tuesday night against them and only came away with a draw, but that was a game we should have won
“That has been a bit of the story of our season in away games, taking draws in games we should be winning, but I am really pleased with how we’ve handled things over the past week.
“We’ve not got the biggest squad and we are generally a young side, so we are looking to see if we can build on that this week.”
Clark was delighted to see McCaw and McMahon get their names on the scoresheet as well in front of a buzzing home support and added: “I’m really pleased for Alex and Dom.
“They are young kids who work hard at their game and they try to do the right things.
“It is always a bonus
