Glens battle to a draw

Rutherglen Reformer - - Reader Travel - Peter Fer­gu­son

Glen­cairn’s last home game of the 2014/15 sea­son ended with a 2-2 draw with rel­e­ga­tion threat­ened Yoker.

It was a patched-up Glens side that took the field, with six play­ers un­avail­able.

Yoker started the game on the front foot, and they were ahead in­side five min­utes. Hutchi­son blocked Har­vey’s free-kick, but David Crerand fired home the re­bound.

Crerand found the net again but the as­sis­tant ref­eree flagged for off­side. Dun­nachie then had to clear Ar­bukle’s ef­fort off the line af­ter the for­ward had rounded Hutchi­son.

Glens started to set­tle and Winslow had to save McGuire’s de­flected ef­fort be­fore Glens equalised through Kil­martin. Dun­nachie knocked the ball into the path of the striker who fired into the roof of the net.

The ref­eree then in­fu­ri­ated the home crowd when he chopped off McNeil’s ef­fort for an ap­par­ent foul on the goal­keeper.

Glens were now on top and came close to a sec­ond when Don­aghy’s shot struck a post and Kil­martin fired the re­bound against the op­po­site post.

The home side got their re­ward in the 41st minute when Kil­martin skipped past a cou­ple of chal­lenges and placed the ball into the net for his sec­ond of the match.

The sec­ond half started with Winslow sav­ing from Es­plin while at the other end, Biss­land’s header struck the out­side of the post.

Both‘keep­ers made fine saves, Winslow from Irvine’s dip­ping ef­fort and Hutchi­son when Mait­land found him­self clean through.

Yoker fi­nally found them­selves level with 15 min­utes to go when Maxwell found space at the back post with his shot de­flect­ing in off Jor­dan Dalzell.

Glen­cairn sea­son winds down with suc­ces­sive 2-2 draws against Shet­tle­ston and Yoker
