Albion Rovers boss Todd Lumsden says one point from his side’s last three games simply wasn’t good enough.
The Irn-Bru Second Division outfit host Forfar Athletic this weekend in search of their first victory in seven matches.
Rovers lost to East Fife and Brechin City before an injury-time penalty equaliser earned Stranraer a point at Stair Park.
It was a key spell of fixtures with Lumsden hopeful of picking up enough points to move clear of the relegation zone.
But it wasn’t to be and now the manager is looking for Rovers to take care of business when the Loons visit Cliftonhill.
“One point from a possible nine wasn’t good enough,” he acknowledged. “We got ourselves into good positions to take at least six points.
“We felt we should have beaten Brechin and Stranraer. Had we capitalised on taking the lead in those games, we could be pushing into mid-table.
“We have to move on and look forward to Forfar. I think we have a competitive team but I’ve said that consistency will be key. We can’t do it one week and then not for the next three.”
Rovers expect Barry Russell (knee) and David Crawford (hamstring) to be fit to play.
