A second half goal from Brad Smith was enough to give us a win over the Bully Wee after losing to them at Central Park ten days earlier.

Smith was one of two changes to the side which had drawn against Stenhousemuir the previous Saturday replacing Brandon Luke while Ben Reilly took over from the injured Blair Malcolm.

In the opening minute Sheerin had the first chance of the afternoon but sent his shot from the edge of the box over the bar, while at the other end Goodwille set up Love but his effort was cleared by Mullen.

Sheerin then sent another effort wide of goal while Gilfillan blocked a Goodwillie shot.

Sheerin then sent a 14 yard shot over the bar with 14 minutes gone and six minutes later Goodwillie sent the ball across the face of the Cowden goal to Love who saw his shot deflected for a corner.

McStay then sent over the resultant corner to Cogill whose header was cleared off the line by Buchanan.

Then as the first half drew to a close a long range shot by Brad Smith was held by keeper Currie.

Five minutes into the second half Reilly saw a shot headed off the line by McNiff as we made a strong start.

On the hour mark an angled shot by Goodwillie was blocked by McGurn at his near post at the expense of a corner.

It was however Cowden who made the breakthrough with 68 minutes gone when Sheerin laid the ball into the path of Brad SMITH to fire home a left footed shot into the corner of the net.

Sub Muirhead then saw a shot blocked while Currie denied Smith and as we went deep into stoppage time the keeper was booked after bringing down Buchanan just short of the halfway line.
