ARBROATH player/manager Paul Sheerin was happy to finish the match against Stirling Albion on Wednesday night with a 2-0 victory, but believes improvement is still needed for a title run.

Speaking after the game, which saw strikes from Steven Doris and himself secure victory, he told Heraldsport he was happy enough with a win: “Yeah pretty much. It was a case of trying to close the gap which we managed.

“It was comfy. Comfy, but we expect more.”

Despite the resounding slam of the transfer window closing on Tuesday night, the Gayfield supremo has his sights set on a few late additions to the strength.

He explained: “I’m hopefully getting more in, hopefully getting at least another one in anyway. I think we need another one. We’re still trying to do that.

“There are still players out there. Obviously we’ve got the luxury of the emergency loan if we need that as well, we have that luxury.

“But I’ve got my eye on someone. I’m just hopeful that they can manage to do that by Saturday.”

Adding another three points to their tally has lengthened their advantage over Stenhousemuir and bought them some breathing space.

The gaffer explained: “The way it is at the minute we’ve got a gap but it’s down to us to try and stay as positive as possible.

“If we can do that then we’ve got a game on our hands.”
