St Monans Swallows.....1 Rosyth Amateurs.............1

Swallows met Rosyth in a sectional cup tie of the Tom MacIntyre Cup.

The away team turned up with only 10 players which had an effect on how this game was to unfold.

Both teams started brightly but it was Rosyth who took the lead.

After two or three slack passes in the home defence a Rosyth forward latched onto the ball and scooped the ball over Segerius into the net.

Swallows failed miserably to up the tempo and continued to play at a snail’s pace.

This suited the away team down to a tee.

Misplaced passes lack of movement off the ball summed up the first half performance which left Rosyth one up at the interval.

After a stern lecture from the manager, Swallows came out in the second half and started to press the ball more.

With 20 minutes to go a cross from the right by Low was expertly headed into the corner of the net by substitute Miller to level the score.

Swallows huffed and puffed for the remaining minutes but didn’t look like getting the winner.

A very insipid display by the home team which will need to be addressed before next week when they travel to meet Kirkcaldy Rovers.
