Wednesday 27th July 2016.
Betfred Cup.
Attendance 421.
We closed out Betfred Cup group games with a win over Arbroath which saw us move off the bottom of the table.
New signing Nikolay Todorov came into the side just hours after signing and turned in a man of the match performance setting up our opening goal then grabbing our second.
After dominating the opening period of the match we went ahead in 14 minutes when O’Brien sent the ball into the box for Todorov to head the ball into the path of Craig JOHNSTON who slotted home from close range.
Three minutes from the break we doubled our advantage when TODOROV got on the end of a Miller cross to send his header past Mutch.
Arbroath had the chance to reduce the deficit ten minutes into the second half when Robertson brought down Kader in the box but the resultant spot kick from Dorris was saved by McGurn.
