The Wanderers returned to winning ways with an excellent 2-1 victory over League Champions Rossvale at Petershill Park yesterday. Despite falling behind to a goal from former Forth man Yamikani Misanjo, goals from Jordan Smith and the industrious Alan Christie prior to half-time were enough to win the three points. Rossvale hit the woodwork twice and also missed a penalty as Lady Luck shone on the Kingshill men for once.

FORTH WANDERERS 1 GLASGOW PERTHSHIRE 3
The Wanderers lost 3-1 to Glasgow Perthshire at Kingshill Park this afternoon in the proverbial game of two halves. Forth were excellent in the first half, but despite their domination only had an Alan Christie goal to show for their efforts. A strong second half fightback from a rejuvenated Perthshire side saw them score three without reply and strengthen their promotion prospects.
FORTH WANDERERS 1 JOHNSTONE BURGH 2
Forth lost 2-1 to Johnstone Burgh in a feisty encounter at Kingshill Park this afternoon. Two down at the interval, the Wanderers upped the tempo in the second half with Robbie Brown pulling one back with 20 minutes remaining. However, they couldn’t find an equaliser, Barry Canning hitting the bar and Ian Harty contentiously having one disallowed for offside in a game littered with peculiar refereeing decisions.
FORTH WANDERERS 2 CAMBUSLANG RANGERS 1

The visitors held a slender half time advantage courtesy of a William Easton penalty but second half strikes from Jason Corbett and Alan Christie,his first for the club,saw the Forth emerge victorious. Defender Craig Gupwell made an assured debut in the heart of the defence.
