FORTH WANDERERS 1 ROYAL ALBERT 2
Forth lost 2-1 to Royal Albert at a wet Kingshill Park this afternoon. Chris Lennon gave the Wanderers the lead after 3 minutes but the Albert came storming back to equalise and could consider themselves unfortunate not to be ahead at half-time. The second half hinged on two dead balls, Chris Lennon failing to convert his penalty before Barry Murdoch curled home a free kick two minutes later for what proved to be the winner. It was an improved second half performance from Forth, despite the dismissal of Jim Dick for two yellow cards, but it failed to yield an equaliser.
On another note, everyone at the club would like to wish a speedy recovery to midfielder John ‘daft haircut’ Watson, for whom an ambulance was called after suffering ligament,tendon and muscle damage.
