For the second successive away game we scored three goals, to become the highest away scorers in the division, but left Broadwood without anything to show for it.

With just ten minutes gone we almost opened the scoring but Glen’s shot was cleared off the line by McNeil.

However three minutes later it was the home side who opened the scoring when Chris SMITH got onto the end of an Easton free kick to send a bullet header past McGurn.

Just past the half hour we got back on level terms when Glen was bundled in the box by McNeil and Dean BRETT slotted home the resulting penalty although keeper Gibson managed to get a hand to it.

The lead proved to be short lived and two minutes later former Cowden man Sean HIGGINS slotted home from close range after McGurn had parried a McNiff effort.

The drama continued and three minutes from the interval Brian ROSS fired home a low shot from the edge of the box.

However just sixty seconds later Linton sent a long throw in into the box and Sives’ attempted clearance ended in the back of his own net.

Renton had a couple of good chances to get us back level early in the second half but was denied by the keeper on each occasion.

It was the Bully Wee who were to go further ahead in 59 minutes when Flynn set up HIGGINS for his second goal of the afternoon.

Then in 73 minutes SMITH got his second goal of the game when he got on the end of an Easton cross to slot home.

Todorov then saw a shot come off the post but with five minutes to go we reduced the deficit when David GORMLEY deflected a Mullen free kick into his own goal, and as the game drew to a close a Greg Ross shot was cleared off the line.
