A goal 12 minutes from time denied the Blues a point in their second friendly in the build up to the Premier Sports Cup opener this week.

Gary Bollan made two changes to the starting line up which had drawn with Dundee United the previous midweek with both Ross Pollock and Gavin Morrison coming into the side.

With just seven minutes gone the home sides Mark Sideserf sent a shot a cross across the face of the Cowden goal, while minutes later Kris Renton fired a shot over the bar.

In the 22nd minute keeper Longmuir held a Liam Buchanan shot and five minutes later Craig Barr headed over after getting on the end of a Mullen free kick.

Another Mullen free kick was then cleared by the home defence while Morrison done likewise with a Forde free kick.

Mullen then saw an effort on goal held by the diving Longmuir, while the Lok’s trialist hit the side netting.

Four minutes from the break a move involving Robbie Buchanan and Renton ended with Liam Buchanan shooting over.

As the first half drew to a close Robbie Buchanan sent a Mullen cross wide of the home goal.

Five minutes into the second half Liam Buchanan saw a shot held by Lumsden, who had taken over in the home goal.

With 58 minutes gone the deadlock was finally broken when Liam BUCHANAN headed home from a Miller cross.

Then in 73 minutes Robbie Buchanan almost made it two when he broke through only to see his shot come off the base of the post.

However, five minutes later the home side equalised when sub Gary McCANN took full advantage of a defensive error to shoot home.

Then in the closing stages Gill pulled off a fine save to deny him a second goal.
