Match Report


The tension of the occasion was highly evident in the opening stages. Immediately after Crawford sent an angular drive narrowly wide, we passed up an even better chance, Lars Zetterlund placing a Kjell Olofsson cut back narrowly wide of the target. We rued that, as just after the half hour mark when Grant Brebner headed in a McGinlay cross.

Thereafter goalmouth incident was scant at either end, but the two exceptions to that were to weigh heavily in our favour. Eighteen minutes from time Gary McSwegan teed up a chance for Kjell Olofsson who side-footed home from six yards and six minutes later, Kjell Olofsson collected a cross from fellow countryman Lars Zetterlund with his head and with a second header managed to beat Gunn to the near post and bring complete salvation from the spectre of relegation.
