Attendance approx. 100
In a horrible day for football on a sodden pitch it was going to be a battle . The hosts had the first attempt at goal on 4 minutes after good play Joe Kinninmonth tried from 30 yards out but did not trouble Wallace .A minute later Craig Newall sent Andrew Gillen free down the right but James Donaldson palmed the ball away before any attackers got near the ball . Newall got down the right again 5 minutes later and his ball to the back post was met by the head of Greg Binnie but Donaldson saved and his defence cleared the danger. On eleven minutes Greg Binnie fought well at the bye line before crossing across the box and the home defence had to look lively as the ball was heading goal ward and they cleared of the line . With 15 minutes on the clock a bizarre decision by the officials when a ball played through on the right , Ross Nimmo who was in a offside position stopped as Ross Allum who was onside ran through collected the ball to score but the referee gave the offside . At the other end a ball into the visitors box was cleared by Daniel Nimmo as far as Johnathan Galloway who fired well over from 30 yards out .A Ross Allum free kick from the right was cleared to just outside the box where Ross Nimmo fired over the bar .Ross Nimmo made a good run down the right before sending a good cross into the box where Ross Allum headed wide of the target .Binnie made a great run down the left before setting up Nimmo who’s shot was cleared for a corner . The corner in was sent to the back post where Chris Townsley headed over the bar .Paul Quin had a couple of opportunity’s for the home side before the end of the half with Wallace gathering easily and the other going wide right of the target .
The first opportunity of the second half came when Binnie made his way into the left hand side of the box before crossing low across the six yard box but there was no takers for the teasing pass .Colin Adamson was just on the park on 50 minutes when he was set up in midfield he gathered the ball before rushing his shot wide left from 25 yards out . Half way through the half and the Visitors were sustaining some decent pressure on the home defence without producing the cutting edge to open the scoring . With time running out for both sides a great ball from Gordon Donaldson found Jackson Barker who headed wide left . The home side provided a sucker punch to the visitors when a ball into the box was cleared and went out as far as MICHAEL FLEMING who from 25 yards out fired through a line of players past the unsighted Wallace in the visitors goal to the delight of his team mates in injury time .
Very disappointing not to take anything from the game with the players putting in a lot of effort and who knows if the officials had got the big call right in the first half how the game may have ended up .
