Cairn hold league leaders
It was another afternoon of frustration for Glencairn as they were held to a 1-1 draw for the third consecutive league game.
There were three changes to The Glens’ starting line-up as Andy Neil returned in defence, Jamie Hunter came into midfield and top scorer Fraser Team returned from injury.
Glencairn’s first serious attempt on goal came in the ninth minute when Jay McKay skipped past a few challenges and then fired in a low shot that keeper Andy Carlin saved.
Thirty minutes in and JC Hutchison had to race out and grab the ball at Paul McBride’s feet.
Glencairn emerged from the changing rooms after half -time and took the game to the visitors.
Team slipped McArdle through on goal and his shot was blocked and rebounded to Sean McGuire, but he fired over from 12 yards.
A penalty claim was waved away in the 55th minute as McGuire burst into the penalty area and his jersey pulled.
The Glens were caught by a sucker punch in the 59th minute, when Hutchison was arranging his defence and Gary Kelly hit a free-kick against the bar which fell to McBride to put Kilsyth ahead.
Kilsyth were fortunate not to be reduced to 10 men in the 63rd minute as David Winters was shown yellow for a hacking challenge.
The hosts had a chance to equalise from the penalty spot on 67 minutes after Team was hauled down but Tony Fraser’s penalty was pushed away.
Ryan McArdle took the resultant corner quickly and Craig McGregor beat the keeper to head home.
