The sides met just four weeks ago and it was the first ever goalless draw between the sides at East End Park.

Allan Johnston felt that both teams probably cancelled each other out. He couldn’t remember too many saves by either goalkeeper. He added that it was good to get a clean sheet but felt that his side has to do a lot better going forward given the creative players that he fielded.
