With visitors from Groundhop uk in attendance this was expected to be a competitive game . Conditions were to put a stop to any good football . The opening chance was created for the home side when Greenhill made a great cross field pass to Tait but his team mate couldn’t get the ball under control and the chance was gone . On five minutes Gary Brass was through on keeper just inside the box , Kyle Marley in the visitors goal saved his first attempt and when the ball rebounded back to Brass he put it over the bar . Stephen Husband sent a free kick deep into the Hosts box but the home defence defended well and cleared the danger . Greg Nicol saw a shot deflected for a corner on 20 minutes . The visitors saw an opportunity go a begging when a ball across the six yard box but no one took advantage of the situation and the ball went out for a throw in . Joe Tait should have done better on the half hour mark when getting on the end of a corner he shot weekly straight at the keeper .A couple of minutes later from another corner Andrew Gillan shot over the bar . With four minutes left Shaun Donoghue came to his side’s rescue with a great save from Christopher Gay .
Dundonald had the wind the second half and Donoghue was called into action when he produced a great save from a shot from Stephen Husband from just inside the box on the left hand side . With 57 minutes on the clock a square ball just outside the box found Husband unmarked but he pulled his shot wide of the target . Jack Smith had a good run cutting inside from the left before shooting wide right .The visitors took the lead on 61 minutes when ELLIOT FORD picked up on a poor clearance before turning in the box and firing home . The game was short of opportunities and this was to be the winner . Disappointing after first half chances to have nothing to show need to take our chances when on top . We regroup and prepare for the visit of Inverkeithing Hillfield Swifts on Wednesday night .
