A second half equaliser for Jordan Allan saw us stretch our unbeaten run to five games after the recent signing from Wolves came on five minutes from the break to replace the injured Blair Malcolm.

There was one change to the side which had drawn at Cliftonhill the previous week with Robbie Buchanan serving his suspension after being sent off and Jason Talbot returning to the line up.

It was the Bully Wee who made the brighter start to the game and a 22 yard drive from Nicholl was saved by the diving McGurn who also held a Goodwillie header following a cross from Cuddihy.

Lamont the saw a free kick come off the post before Cox fired wide at the other end with our first attempt of the afternoon.

The visitors then took the lead in 16 minutes following a good move which saw Goodwillie send over a cross to John RANKIN who sent a first time shot high into the corner of the net.

Minutes later Mullen latched onto a Nicholl clearance but his shot from the edge of the box was held by Currie.

Just short of the half hour a Fraser free kick into the box was met by Deas at the back post but his header when just over the bar.

McGurn then saved a low shot from McStay and in the closing minutes of the first half the same player headed over while a Cuddihy shot from the edge of the box was held by the keeper.

The second half opened with McGurn holding a free kick from Lamont while Rankin sent a shot just over.

However with eight minutes of the half gone, we got back on level terms when Jordan ALLAN beat the offside trap to slot the ball past Currie into the bottom corner of the net.

There after both sides had their chances to snatch all three points and with 20 minutes to go a ball into the six yard box from Cox reached Deas but he headed over while minutes later McGurn denied Goodwillie.
