Milestones

This game lacked excitement but the home side were delighted to win. They had most of the possession but could not penetrate a 5-man defence.

In 7 minutes a Ross corner seemed net bound but hit off the post into the arms of Bruce. Few other first half shots found the target.

In 60 minutes a Ross cross was tipped over, a Mclean side foot shot went just over in 70 minutes and in 77 minutes Stewart hit it over from 18 yards after a fine run by Wilson.

Three minutes later Wilson was tripped in the box by McGoldrick and Stewart converted the penalty. Close to the end an Addicoat cross was tipped over and McLean headed past the post from the corner. Overall a deserved win for the home side and one which puts them 8 points clear at the top of the Division.

None.
