  • Ross Club 2, Tain Thistle 2

    A second half fight back for the Jags saw them record another draw in the Ross-shire Welfare league tonight. Manager Darren Mackay made a number of changes for the game. Sitting out of the squad due to a limit on North Caledonian players was Arron Christie, while Darran Goller, Paul Cowie and Michael Brand also dropped to the bench. Brian Cameron, Martyn Farquhar, Joe Sutherland and Martin Smith were all called into the starting lineup. Niall McVicar returned to the side for the first time since April.<br /><br />The game proved to the proverbial game of two halves. Martin Macdonald and Liam Muir had given Ross Club a commanding lead in the first half, but following a number of second half changes, Martin Smith was able to pull a goal back for the Tain men. With twenty minutes remaining, a penalty award handed Thistle a lifeline, and Liam Rostock duly scored the spot kick to make it 2-2.<br /><br />The game ended a draw and leaves Thistle sitting a point behind the Dingwall club in the Ross-shire Welfare league table. Next week's games involve a double header against Invergordon Social Club, both ties to be played at the Links. <br /><br /><b>Team:</b> Allan, Durrand (Cowie), Duff, Cameron, Sutherland, Farquhar, D Christie (McVicar), Mailley, Smith, Maclennan (Goller) and Rostock<br /><br /><b>Subs not used:</b><br />Brand<br /><br /><b>Goals:</b><br />Smith 55, Rostock pen. 70<br /><br /><b>Booked:</b><br />Cowie
