Match Report


After the disappointment of Ross County, this was a much improved performance which deserved better. Robbie Winters scored our first league goal of the season when he knocked in a Kjell Olofsson cross from the left after Gould had twice earlier saved from the Swede.

We survived a rather torrid spell shortly after the break, but would have gone further ahead had Gould not kept out a Steven Thompson effort. Celtic then hit us with a sucker one-two, Burley lifting a Larsson through ball over Sieb Dijkstra who three minutes later was beaten by Burchill's near post shot. Even in the remaining six minutes we had three possible chances, but justice was failed to be served by taking at least one of them.
