Milestones

Stale Mates



These two sides looked as though they could play for the whole of March without scoring. In terms of opportunities, the hosts probably shaded it, but when we did miss the first defender, crosses invariably went behind the incoming strikers. On the one occasion we got on the end of the ball Billy Mckay's flicked header was cleared away from goal by Kanayo Megwa. Harper brought about the only save of note in the first half from either keeper when Josh Rae kept his shot out from a tight angle and the follow up from Duffy was blocked as he shot. Rae went off injured as he rushed out to save at the feet of Pepple as he sped into the box, the keeper coming off worst to be replaced by Hutton for the final twenty minutes. Danny Devine headed over a couple of times as he does regularly and we did exert a bit of pressure on the visitors box over the final fifteen minutes, but the clear cut opportunities were difficult to come by and there was always the danger of being caught on the break by the diminutive but lively McStravick and the awkward gangly Todorov. As it was, the game ended all square to retain the status quo at the bottom end of the table. It's very tight down there.

FULL TIME: 0-0

Not the worst 0-0 draw ever, but scoring opportunities were at a premium. Neither keeper was overly troubled and this game had scoreless written all over it given the evidence of the first twenty minutes.

Decent debut from Samson Lawal but our MotM by a country mile was Cammy Kerr who was involved in everything. Max Anderson put in a good shift as well but we need more directness from the wide areas with Harper turning back practically every time he was given the ball wide left.
