18th August 2018 Hard Won Three Points

Lochee United were made to work hard for the win today against a very well organised Kennoway Star Hearts.The visitors went ahead on 20 minutes after a harmless looking effort from Bryce 20 yards out deceived Lochee goalie Lenny Ewing. Lenny thought the ball was going past the post and out for a goal kick unfortunately for him it crept inside of him and the post to give the visitors a 1-0 lead. At that point the game was a bit scrappy and Lochee now had to step it up for the equaliser it duly came on 31 minutes from a delightful effort by Grant Lawson. Just after the goal KSH had a superb effort tip over the bar by Ewing. Halftime 1-1

Second half saw the home team with the majority of the ball and the winning goal came with 18 minutes left to play from an in rushing Danny Millar who headed home a perfect corner from Jamie Reid. Lochee had a host of opportunities without being at our best but credit to KSH they had a game plan and it almost worked for them What counts for Lochee is the three points nothing else as it was not one of our best performances. For me Jamie Reid who came on with 25 minutes to play changed the tempo and deserves my man of the match. Picture has Grant Lawson battling for the ball.
