Arbroath earned a good point today at
After around 15 minutes Arbroath had the first chance of the match. A good cross in from the left by Marc Miller was met by the head of Alan Brazil, and the keeper made a good diving save to his right. A few minutes later though,
Paddy Connolly then had a header ruled out for offside, but from where I was standing (nearly in line with the linesman) it looked onside.
A few minutes later at the other end, Alan Brazil had a good chance to equalise. A mix up between the
Gavin Swankie had another chance right on Half Time, but his shot was easily saved at the near post by Peter Cherrie, and the teams went in at half time with Ayr United leading 1-0.
Arbroath brought on Paul Farquharson for Gavin Swankie( apparently he took a knock to the knee, but will still be training on Monday) and Farqy immediately was involved in the play. Some good pressure by Arbroath down the left wing saw a good ball across goal to Alan Brazil, but his header was a yard wide of the left hand post.
Arbroath then scored in the 59th minute. A free kick was put into the middle by Euan Donaldson, and Jamie Bishop met the ball perfectly and put it into the net. This warmed the NINE away fans right up!!
The equaliser seemed to put some life into
A mixture of poor finishing and good goalkeeping from Neil Inglis, saw the game finish 1-1, a great away point for the Lichties!
