Rain, rain and more rain!! Yes, Keeper went for a cross ball was slightly impeded, ball simply slid from his grasp and ended up in back of net. Wet gloves, wet ball, after some really good performances this season, this was just a wee error.... forgive and forget, move on, happens to the best keepers. 2 excellent goals tonight and some crushing tackles, we opened them up a few times and could have scored a couple more having been clean through with just their keeper to beat. They flung everything at us towards the end of the game and the ref somehow found extra minutes from somewhere. Our defence (and midfield) throwing bodies infront of the ball. Great stuff for a Tuesday night, well done all!!!!!
That was great entertainment for a wet Tuesday. We were deserved winners, notwithstanding the six yard box mayhem in the last 5 minutes. Thought Boyd, Stewart and Wallace (aka "The Animal") were outstanding up front with a lot of movement, skill and graft. Goes without say but the Dunlop's were immense once again too.
Cracking result after Saturdays referee shafting. Look forward to the points at the blazers on Saturday and stennie next week to bump us into the top four for christmas. Sets us up nicely for new year revenge at mordor!
I'm sure quite a few Brechin fans feel that the ref. shafted them on Tuesday night by not sending of Ryan Wallace for a sliding challenge which had the Brechin player crashing into out dugout!
IMHO - the ref got it right by booking Ryan - it was a foul but the conditions made the tackle look much worse that it actually was. Couldn't believe the transformation this produced in the wee old man sitting in front of me with his wife - every time Ryan touched the ball after that he jumped up and screamed Animal!

Absolutely agree Shakey, there wasn't much in the tackle altho' it was 2 Rovers players sliding. It's traditional for City to have a wee old loud mouthed prat, they had one long dead now that every time a Rovers man chested the ball it was hand-ball etc.
