A de­ci­sion that has cost Glens points

Ruther­glen Glen­cairn ... 1 May­bole Ju­niors ........... 1

Rutherglen Reformer - - Sports - Peter Fer­gu­son

Glen­cairn’s wait for a win at home in the league this sea­son goes on as a fourth match out of seven in Ruther­glen ended in a draw.

Wil­lie Har­vey made only one change to the team af­ter last week’s away win at Shotts with Graeme Brown re­turn­ing af­ter four weeks out through in­jury.

The visi­tors went close in the 13th minute. Alan Love’s cor­ner was met by the free head of Reilly, and David Dun­nachie was forced into an ex­cel­lent clear­ance off the goal line.

Glen­cairn’s pres­sure grew at the other end as Dun­nachie’s over­head kick at­tempt dropped half a yard wide of the tar­get.

Mc­Nab struck the out­side of the post in the 41st minute and a lovely pass­ing move in­volv­ing Alan Muir and Fraser ended with Weir sav­ing at the feet of Duffy.

In the sec­ond half, the ref­eree an­gered the home con­tin­gent by al­low­ing a May­bole player to block a Glen­cairn free kick from less than a yard away and then al­low­ing play to con­tinue, re­sult­ing in a break­away where May­bole had a chance to score.

Hutchi­son then made a ter­rific save to deny a bul­let header by Steven Shank­land in the 54th minute.

A minute later came the mo­ment that baf­fled ev­ery­body and left Glen­cairn fu­ri­ous.
