The Black and Whites boss is also lamenting the loss of midfielder Brian Cameron with a knee injury which could keep him out for the rest of the year.

Price was pleased for Falkirk loan striker Jaime Wilson, whose 66th minute strike and first goal for the club cancelled out Innes Murray's opener for the capital side.

"Sometimes a point on paper isn’t as good result but sometimes in terms of the character shown, it is a good result," said Price after the match.

"The way things have been going for us, when we go 1-0 down I’m scared that the doom and gloom sets in. We are on top in a game and we’ve gone 1-0 down again like we did against Stranraer - but the character was fantastic.

"To come back in the game, they thoroughly deserved the equaliser but I think they deserved more from the game.

"I think we’ve been the dominant side in our last four games and we’ve only got four points from it so I don’t need to tell you where the problem is.

"We need to be a bit more ruthless if we are going to win more games and we will keep working on it.

"There’s absolutely no problems with characters or what players are putting into the game, the general play is good.

"We are definitely on the right path but we need to be more clinical in both boxes."

Price said of Wilson's maiden Elgin goal: "I’m glad for Jaime getting his first goal. He’s been frustrated and it's important for him.

"Hopefully he kicks on from that and he will have Kane (Hester) coming back from his misdemeanor, so things are rosy."

Elgin have a blank Saturday due to their Scottish Cup exit to Clydebank and next face leaders Kelty Hearts at Borough Briggs.

But they are set to do so without Cameron, and possibly Rory MacEwan who has missed the last two games with a hamstring pull.

"December is going to be a big month for us but I have been saying it for a long time, keep the faith and we will be there and we will be fine.

"Rory is a big loss because he has been our best player in the last four weeks.

"You miss him when he’s not in the team.

"We are going to be without Soapy (Brian Cameron) for a good month with a knee injury, that's our initial reaction anyway and it's another big blow."
