Date: 23rd December 2017 Kick off: 3:00pm
Competition: Ladbrokes League 2 Referee: Mike Roncone
Venue: Balmoor Stadium Attendance:

A goal with the last touch of the ball three minutes into stoppage time denied us a fourth successive draw as we closed 2017 at Balmoor Stadium.

Not surprisingly Gary Bollan stuck with the starting line up which had drawn in midweek while David Syme returned to the bench after serving his three match suspension.

After coming close to breaking the deadlock just after the half hour Cameron MUIRHEAD put us ahead with 33 minutes gone when Buchanan burst into the left hand side of the box and squared the ball to the young forward to tap the ball home from close range.

McGurn then done well to save from McLean as the home side looked to get back on level terms while McAllister’s appeals for a penalty after a tussle with Pyper were waived aside.

It however took the Blue Toon just three minutes into the second half to get back level when Stevenson sent over a cross from the right and Rory McALLISTER headed home.

Things then got worse for us in 52 minutes when Jason BROWN got on the end of a knock down from McCracken to slot home from close range.

Our response to the double set back was quick and within two minutes we were back on level terms when Robbie BUCHANAN got on the end of a Brad Smith pass and cut into the home box rounding Fleming before shooting into the empty net.

With three minutes remaining Buchanan was sent off after a tussle with Gibson and as the game went into the third minute of stoppage time Jordon BROWN netted a dramatic winner for the Blue Toon.
