With the match in stalemate in terms of goals, Nikolay Todorov replaced Kevin O’Hara in 72 minutes and it was the Bulgarian striker who would break the deadlock seven minutes later. McCann fed Macdonald on the right and ignoring the striker’s overlap the former Airdrie man deliver a sweet cross for TODOROV to head home at the near post.
