Kirkintilloch Rob Roy 1 Lugar Boswell Thistle 2

Kirkintilloch Rob Roy 1 Lugar Boswell Thistle 2

This was a very important game for both teams as they continue to battle their way out of the dreaded drop zone and for long spells in the first half the home side looked more up for the fight than the visitors. Indeed Stuart Leavy was to pull off a couple of miraculous saves to keep his team in the game at all. That apart the first half was a drab affair as there was not a lot of quality football on view to warm up the brave few that ventured out in the cold conditions. With both teams looking forward to the half time break and a chance to escape the biting wind blowing through Adamslie Park, the Rabs broke upfield and broke the deadlock with a controversial goal. A cross from the right saw the Lugar defence claiming offside, but Chalmers didn’t hesitate and with the help of his arm he deflected the ball into Lonmuir’s path, the Rob Roy striker slammed it past Leavy to put his side one up. Leavy’s protestations about the illegal way the goal was scored resulted in a booking for the Lugar keeper.

Half Time 1-0

Rab's keeper, Paul Mylet, win this time.

Jimsie Kirkland brought on Alex Duffy to replace Stuart McPherson in a ploy to get Thistle straight back into the game and it seemed to have done the trick as Lugar took control of the game. Lugar’s equaliser came in the 56th minute, a lovely passing movement involving Darren McMahon and Andy Boyle saw the ball being played through to Patrick Walker. The Lugar striker looked up and saw Paul Cameron in the clear and he played the ball out to him. Cameron struck the ball with precision past the flatfooted Rob Roy keeper into the onion bag.

Lugar were well in control at this stage but they then went on to shoot themselves in the foot with 30 minutes left to play. Duffy who was giving the Kirky defence problems with his pace was on the receiving end of some rough treatment and after one of these tackles which once more saw him upended, this time just inside the box, he felt aggrieved that he wasn’t awarded a penalty. The red mist decended and he let rip with a colourful phrase that gave the ref no option but to produce the red card and send Duffy packing. Lugar were now under the cosh and Rob Roy used their extra man advantage to push forward and hem the Boswell back into their own half. But Thistle’s ten men were equal to the task and some brave defending kept the scores level. As Kirkintilloch kept pressing for a winner, they were pushing more men forward and Lugar exploited the gaps at the back. With 10 minutes left on the clock, Boyle outstripped the Rabs defence and fired in a cross that found its way to Cameron. The Lugar winger controlled the ball before firing past Mylet to send his team into the lead. Walker and Eaglesham then came close to putting the game beyond doubt but both men were out on their feet by the time their chances came. In the end Lugar were happy when the final whistle came they took all three points to secure 7th place in the league.

Full Time 1-2

Leavy in great form again as he clears a second half corner.


Rab's Nairn must score from this with Leavy grounded.


But he somehow managed to punt it over the bar.


Mylet's fingertips deny Eaglesham.

Due to my hectic routine, I only managed to catch the follow the half of this match. I had work after the halftime show ended. And I was pretty bummed out about it. But you summarized the whole match really well! Not only did you not overlook details but still managed to make it short, concise and to-the-point. Bravo!
