  • Cromarty 2-2 Tain Thistle

    A last-gasp Kevin Graham strike salvaged a 2-2 draw away to Cromarty, on a night where Thistle never really got going. <br /><br />Joe Stainke was handed his first start for the club, with Daniel Christie, Ryan Johnston and Colin Burry all missing from the side. <br /><br />It was the worst of starts for Tain, as in the first minute, a 35 yard free-kick taken by Tom Nicholson curled into the bottom corner of Steven Wemyss’ goal, to give the home side an immediate one-nil lead. <br /><br />A series of corners and free-kicks were all that Tain threatened with following this early setback, with Stainke coming close on a few occasions and causing all sorts of problems to the Crom’s defence. However, the game trickled out till half time, leaving Tain with some thinking to do. <br /><br />After the interval, Tain pressed for a while, looking for an equalizer, but ten minutes into the second half, Cromarty doubled their lead, Paddy Hardcastle calmly finishing past Wemyss. <br /><br />Tain continued their onslaught on the home defence, with few clear cut chances. This was the case until Darran Goller took advantage of a knock down, with a brilliant finish from a tight angle with the outside of his boot that clipped the bar on it’s way in. <br /><br />Tain then sprung into life, piling pressure on the Home side’s back four. They were running out of time, until Kevin Graham was first to react 8 yards out from a scramble from a corner, and lashed home with his weaker right foot. Tain pressed for the winner but it wasn’t to be, and although they rescued a point, it must surely be seen as two dropped.<br /><br />Report by John Maclellan.<br /><br /><b>Team:</b><br />Wemyss, Cameron, Sutherland (Graham), A Christie, Oliver, Durrand, Brand, Stainke (Ross), Farquhar, Maclellan, Goller<br /><br /><b>Subs not used:</b><br />D Nimmons, C Nimmons<br /><br /><b>Goals:</b><br />Goller 80, Graham 88<br /><br /><b>Bookings:</b><br />None<br /><br /><b>Match details:</b><br /><a href="http://www.tainthistle.co.uk/matchdetails.php?id=434">http://www.tainthistle.co.uk/matchdetails.php?id=434</a><br /><br /><b>Man of the Match:</b><br />Arron Christie
