Cumbernauld Colts   1  v  0  Selkirk

Winning Goal:

In Saturday's top of the table fixture Selkirk and Colts occupied 1st and 3rd place respectively separated only by goal difference with Spartans in second place.

In an even first half Selkirk's improvement over the last six months under new manager Ian Fergus was evident as chances were few and far between in the opening stages as both sides enjoyed spells in possession but it was Colts who looked more likely to create an opportunity in the first half.
As the half progressed both teams had chances through on goal but goalkeepers Sam George and Gregor Amos refused to be beaten as the teams went into half time level.

Half Time 0-0

Colts introduced Fraser Sheridan at half time for the injured Waddle, a positive switch by Manager's Orr and McKinlay as Sheridan's pace and creativity can be effective offensively.

There was not much between the two teams but again it was Colts who looked more likely to score with Sheridan and O'Neil supporting Brown up front. The visitors however were not without their chances; Sam George was called into action on two occasions to make important saves to his left hand side holding on to the ball well.

It was the Colts however who would go on to secure the three points, with the all important opening goal coming five minutes from time as Colts were awarded a free kick five yards inside their own half. Kerr played a long ball into the Selkirk box which Sean Brown was able to control on his chest and catching the keeper off guard with an overhead kick worthy of winning any match, putting the Colts into the lead with time running out.

Colts managed to keep hold of the one goal advantage until the final whistle claiming an important home win which moved them up to second place in the league table with only goal difference keeping the Cumbernauld side off of the top spot. Three from three for the Colts who have made their best start to their Lowland League season.

Full Time 1-0
