City went into this match on the back of an excellent result the previous week against Whitehill knowing that our visitors Tynecastle would be eager to consolidate their own league position with a determined display. This was our fourth meeting of the current season with both sides winning 1 apiece courtesy of our cup encounters coupled with a 3-3 draw in the league. City started as the more positive side and Ryan Wilson missed a great opportunity to put the home side ahead when he missed the target from close after 20 minutes.Grant Vanson had a shot held and Robbie Ross had a goal disallowed for an off the ball infringement which surprised the City bench. However with Tynecastle allways threatening going forward and with the pace of McIntosh, Sproule and Devlin it was no surprise that in stoppage time at the end of the first half a Wayne McIntosh overhead kick was parried by City keeper Stobie only for Devlin to stroke home the rebound. H-T 0-1 After the break Tynecastle had 2 good chances to increase their lead when a Devlin shot was blocked on the line and then Wayne Sproule had an effort saved by Stobie. However with 6 minutes remaining City captain Ross Macnamara scored a sensational 25 yard volley to earn his side a 1-1 draw. On reflection both sides may well have lost it however on the other hand it could have gone the other way and a draw was probably just about right.F-T 1-1 City can now turn their attenioin to the game this Saturday against Threave Rovers in the Semi-Final of the S.W. Challenge Cup at Castle Douglas knowing that a result would give the boys a final berth against either Spartans or Vale of Leithen. It could be a cracker.
