Lochee United 2 Forfar West End 1

A (very) late goal from substitute Scott McComiskie gave Lochee United all three points at Thomson Park.

It looked like the spoils were going to be shared until McComiskie got his head to a Danny Cavanagh corner in the fourth minute of added time to break Forfar hearts.

This was a disappointing game though, with very few clear-cut chances for either side.

The visitors broke the deadlock on nine minutes when Callum Petrie went down under the challenge of Garry Kenneth and the referee awarded a penalty which Graeme HART stuck expertly away.

It was 15 minutes into the game before Lochee created their first real opening, Kevin Milne setting up Danny Millar, who shot wide.

Grant Lawson also had a chance but shot weakly at keeper Gary Thain. However, the Bluebells carved out an equaliser in the 22nd minute. Dougie Cameron’s free kick was touched onto the bar by Connor Birse and MILNE was there to hit home the rebound.

At the other end Forfar’s Craig Batchelor was set up with a clever backheel but the striker miskicked in front of goal.

A couple of minutes before half time Lawson beat a couple of defenders but his shot curled wide of Thain’s post.

The second half was a bit short on goalmouth action as well with Kenneth’s header from a Lawson corner the only thing to trouble Thain.

A few substitutions failed to lift the game and there was a flurry of bookings as the match became tousy.

McComiskie came on for Birse in the 78th minute and was soon involved. Danny Millar’s ball into the box was met by the sub but he headed it back out instead of trying to loop it over Thain, who was well off his line.

The Bluebells had a strong claim for a penalty when Cavanagh’s corner kick appeared to strike a Forfar arm, but the ref waved play on.

Another Cavanagh corner found the head of Kenneth but went over the bar.

As the game drew to a close there were corners at both ends and Jordan Millar in the home goal had to be smart to deal with Petrie’s inswinger.

But it was at the other end that the winner came with McCOMISKIE getting the final touch of the game to give the home side all three points.

It was cruel on the visitors who had battled away all game and they will certainly prove tough opposition in the coming games.

Lochee United: J Millar, D Millar, Kenneth, Kirk, Webster, Blair, Ritchie, Cameron, Lawson (Cavanagh 62), Milne, Birse (McComiskie 78).

Forfar WE: Thain, C Walls, Rae, George, Timmons, McKenzie, Weir, Montgomery (Godfrey 70), Batchelor (McIlravey 89), Hart (A Walls 65), Petrie.
