A Scrappy Point Keeps the Unbeaten Run Going

Last updated : 22 November 2003 By Firparkcorner

Both sides fought hard to regain possession but promptly gave it back either by slack passing or by electing to play the high ball from back to front. The highlight of the game from the ‘Well side point of view came just before the half hour. Adams ignored the chance of a free kick and the referee seemed to play an advantage. He passed to David Clarkson who was outside the left corner of the penalty area. He shimmied past two defenders, took a touch, and from eighteen yards unleashed a smashing right footed curler into the postage stamp corner. One up.

Livi pushed for the equaliser but their threat was well matched. Referee Underhill managed to book our goal scorer for an alleged dive much to the surpise of the home crowd. In thirty eight minutes Lilley found himself in the box and his quick turn and shot found Marshall’s right hand corner. All square at the break.

The six thousand plus crowd hoped for an improvement in the second half but we were to be disappointed. Hammell came close early in the half with a thirty yard free kick and again at the end when he let loose a pile driver which MacKenzie did well to hold.

There can be no complaint at the effort shown by the players but it was not pretty football. The slick passing football was squashed by a Livi team which pressed as much as we did. A draw was a fair result. The good news is that the unbeaten run continues.

Bring on the Pars on Tuesday!
