Match report


Hall Russell United 0-1 Bridge of Don Thistle
Thistle were the travelling team today, away to Hall Russell United, taking all 3 points thanks to an excellent strike from a free kick in the first half.
...

The match started with the home side making an attempt on goal, hitting the post and then back out for a shot over the bar in the first 2 minutes. Thistle defended well, not allowing the home side's strong start make an impact on the scoreline and allowing the away team to start to take control of the game. 10 minutes in and Thistle had made 3 attempts on goal but none of them putting the team ahead.
 
More attempts followed for Thistle with a shot off the post by ALEXANDER at 13 minutes and a header just over the bar by SHAND minutes later. Thistle's defence carried on working well to stop the chances made by the home side, clearing any attempts made. Both teams were putting up a good fight but the game was still goalless at the half hour mark.
 
This all changed minutes later with a free kick awarded to Thistle just outside rhe box. Two Thistle players approached the ball, with the first playing a fake shot to allow ALEXANDER to make the strike past the keeper and into the back of the net.
