Match Report

After so long without a gool, it came as early relief when a cross from Kjell Olofsson somewhat fortuitously fell to Andy McLaren to drive home. When Kjell Olofsson headed in a nearly flighted Mark Perry cross with less than half an hour played, a long awaited victory appeared a certainty.

However, even although reduced to ten men had other ideas, Paul Kane's freak goal pegging back our lead and ensuing an uncomfortable final few minutes before a welcome win was confirmed.
