Match Report


Having weathered Hearts early storm, it was somewhat ironic that we should fall behind to an own goal just before the interval. But the immediate reply through Kjetl Olofssons goal was no less than we deserved. Had it not been for a magnificent save by McKenzie from newcomer Magnus Skoldmark's header three minutes from the end, we would have taken a point. As it was a low- level header from John Robertson on the hour mark decided the issue in the home sides favour.
