Thursday's 3-1 win over Stirling Albion pushed City up to third place in League 2, but just one point separates second from fifth in the battle for the top four and the play-offs.

In his post-match interview above, Price lauded his team's efforts to battle their way back into the promotion picture, and called for them to go again when they head for Edinburgh City on Saturday.

"The next hurdle is clear but we've still got work to do," Price warned.

"It's a shoot-out to get in the top four and we desperately want to get there.

"Questions were asked of the players and they've answered so far. They've shown the character to bounce back so credit to them.

"The two results (Stranraer and Stirling's wins last weekend) both went against us and left us with a mountain to climb.

"But we've had the best possible response - two really good results.

"We need to go down to Edinburgh and be positive and try to get a result there.

"If we get a result it's in our own hands and we could be very close."
