MATCH REPORTS

Forfar West End v Lochee United
McBookie.com North Superleague (16/11/2019)

(Report Submitted by Lochee United)

Reporter: Jim Davie

Forfar West End 0 Lochee United 2

Forfar West End and Lochee United usually serve up close encounters and this one was no exception, though the visitors had the upper hand in terms of possession and chances on goal.

It was a miserable afternoon at Strathmore Park weather-wise and neither side was able to create much in front of goal in the first half.

The first opportunity went to Lochee when Bryan Deasley pinged a great pass with the outside of his boot to Alan Tulleth whose shot warmed the hands of keeper Gary Thain.

Forfar replied with an Andy Walls shot easily gathered by Jordan Millar.

Tulleth was proving the Bluebells most promising outlet and he fired in a dangerous cross across the face of the home goal. The winger then had a free kick deflected round the post for a corner.

However, it was West End who came closest to opening the scoring when Callum Petrie’s shot came crashing back off Millar’s bar.

Grant Lawson then had a header palmed away by the home keeper as the half fizzled out.

Lochee attacked down the slope in the second half and got their noses in front on 52 minutes. A corner on the left was cleared only as far as Greg KIRK on the edge of the box and the Lochee skipper fired home.

Tulleth’s strong running down either wing was causing problems for the Forfar defence and he set up Deasley and Reece Ritchie with chances to increase Lochee’s lead.

Another great cross from Tulleth almost found the head of Deasley just a few yards out, but the striker just couldn’t reach the ball.

The home side came into the game for a spell and gave Millar in goal a few moments of concern, none more so than when Davie Rae crashed a shot off his left hand post with just six minutes left.

That served as a warning to Lochee that they needed a second goal to put the game to bed and they got it just minutes later.

A Lawson cross found the head of Kevin BUCHAN, who had only just come on as a sub, and he netted past a helpless Thain.

Another sub, Logan Davie, almost made it three when he was picked out by Kevin Milne, but his shot was blocked by the home defence.

Although Lochee spent most of the game in the opposition half, there were times when West End put their defence under pressure, but Garry Kenneth and his back four restricted the home side to scraps.

Forfar WE: Thain, Weir, Cruickshank, Rae, George, Timmons, Walls (McMahon 68), Godfrey, Petrie (Batchelor 63), McIlravey (Fullerton 46), Wilson.

Lochee Utd: Millar, McNally, Kirk, Kenneth, Blair, Tulleth (Cavanagh 78), Gallacher, Lawson, Ritchie (Davie 71), Milne, Deasley (Buchan 85).

East Craigie v Dundee Violet
McBookie.com North Premier League (16/11/2019)

(Report submitted by East Craigie)

Reporter: Stephen Durcan (East Craigie)

EAST CRAIGIE v DUNDEE VIOLET

A short hop, skip and a jump brought Violet to Craigie Park for this top three Dundee derby. Seven wins out of seven at home for East Craigie against a side with an impressive return of five victories out of seven on their travels. A run of four wins in the last five league outings had propelled Violet up the table whilst the hosts, before this game, had won eight consecutive matches and found the net a jaw-dropping 43 times.

Following several days of frost and a fair amount of rain the surface was soft and sticky. Definitely one for the mudlarks. East Craigie made two changes to the side which beat Forfar Albion a fortnight earlier....Sean Reekie and Jordan Conway replacing James Malone and Conan Howett in the starting eleven.

With a steady drizzle both sides immediately struggled to find their feet on the testing surface. The hosts enjoyed the bulk of the early possession but could only muster a couple of harmless free-kicks which troubled neither defence nor keeper. On the quarter hour Reekie was robbed by Derek Johnston during a Craigie forward move and the nippy striker bolted upfield, managed a cross, which was cleared amid panic stations in the home defence.

The Shipbuilders responded with Adam Brown's high punt being readily claimed by keeper Fraser Burnett following a fine ball from Finlay Baird.

On 28 minutes Violet's Sean Tucker was played through on goal with just keeper Iain Ross to beat but the Craigie no.1 pulled off a stunning save to push his shot out for a corner. This defence-splitting move was replayed five minutes later and it brought the opening goal. Johnston played a perfect ball through to TUCKER who this time made no mistake in placing beyond the outstretched keeper.

They say it only takes a minute and it certainly did as East Craigie responded in the most perfect way....George Johnston holding the ball up well in his usual style then slipping a pass for the unmarked RORY FAULKNER to strike firmly home from just yards out. Johnston was then floored and Baird steered the resulting free-kick towards the top corner but Burnett leapt high to claim.

The home side were now in the ascendancy with the tireless Johnston feeding the ball into the path of Faulkner who turned on a sixpence and watched his shot spin wide of the post. The Violet strike duo still proved troublesome though as a free-kick slipped out of the arms of keeper Ross and, in a moment of defensive panic, the ball was somehow cleared amid a sea of kicking legs.

East Craigie took the lead two minutes before the break when Johnston's corner dropped at the feet of FRASER MACLEOD and his deft shot clipped a defender on it's way into the net.

HALF-TIME: East Craigie 2 Dundee Violet 1

Within five minutes of the restart the hosts went 3-1 up with FAULKNER grabbing his second after nipping through defence and driving low and precise. On the hour mark Calum Kinnear swung a corner kick to the far post and Lawrie Mitchell nodded the ball into the path of James Connelly but his rasping shot was deflected wide of Ross's near post.

Determined play from Craigie's Johnston saw him find MacLeod in space and he unselfishly played the ball to Baird, but keeper Burnett was quick to react to block the effort. On 71 minutes the hosts won a free-kick 20-yards out which Andrew McDonald, with great accuracy, almost planted under the crossbar but Burnett, ever-alert, managed to push to safety. Another home free-kick from the 18-yard line by Johnston was also saved by the active visiting keeper.

The Craigie points were sealed on 83 minutes when a tenacious MACLEOD battled his way into space and steered home to the jubilation of the home bench and the home support. The Shipbuilders forced a flurry of late corners before one final effort fell to substitute Euan McIlvenny in injury time but his shot was deflected wide.

FINAL SCORE: East Craigie 4 Dundee Violet 1

EAST CRAIGIE: Ross, Reekie (McIlvenny 83), Paterson, McDonald, Brannan, Baird (Moran 85), Brown, Conway, Faulkner, Johnston, MacLeod. UNUSED: Howett, Christie, Malone.

DUNDEE VIOLET: Burnett, Bannon (McWilliam 75), C. Kinnear, Connelly, Garden, Ogg, Mitchell, R. Kinnear (Kelly 71), Tucker, Johnston, Ross. UNUSED: Glennie, Edgar, Smith.
