Cowden v St. Johnstone

PostedJuly 28, 2009

A young Cowden team narrowly lost to SPL new boys St. Johnstone at Central Park on Tuesday night. Derek McInnes brought a strong team as Danny Lennon rested a number of key players in the final friendly of the pre-season programme.

St. Johnstone made the early running and took the lead after 13 minutes after a free kick from Danny Grainger was headed home by Kevin Rutkiewicz.

The visitors continued to enjoy the bulk of possession after the break and added a 2nd goal after 66 minutes through Stevie Milne.

Cowden found their feet as the game went on and eventually pulled a deserved goal back after 85 minutes after Paul McQuade headed home off the underside of the bar. The Blue Brazil almost snatched a draw a minutes later but Gareth Wardlaw fired narrowly over the bar.

COWDEN: David Hay, Mark Baxter (Jamie Reid), Jay Stein (Scott Linton), Neil McCabe, Dene Droudge, Kenny Adamson (Jon Robertson), Brian Fairbairn (Scott McBride), Mark Ramsay, John Dempster (Gareth Wardlaw), Marek Tomana (John Ferguson) and Derek Wallace (Paul McQuade).
