Forfar Athletic 0 Queens Park 3

Sunday, 24 December 2017 11:12

Forfar Athletic’s poor run continued on Saturday with a 3-0 defeat against fellow relegation rivals Queen’s Park.

Goals from Adam Cummins, Robbie Leitch and Dominic Docherty were enough for the Spiders to put away a lacklustre Loons side and send them to the bottom of the league.

Four changes were made following last week’s defeat at Stranraer as Duthie, Lochhead, Malone and See replaced Aitken, Milne, Whyte and Quigley.

Less than two minutes into the game the visitors took the lead as David Galt’s cross was nodded past McCallum by Adam Cummins.
Forfar looked to get back in the game four minutes later; Scott Lochhead sending Ousman See clear but his effort was blocked by Michael White.
Mark Miller went close from 35 yards shortly after but the Spiders were awarded a chance to double their lead when the ref awarded an indirect free kick inside the box after a pass back.
Galt’s shot from the set piece was blocked by the defence with the follow up cleared.
Billy Mortimer headed over after a Galt corner and from the goal kick Dylan Easton collected the ball before sending a long range shot past the post.
Travis came close for the Loons again but it was Queen’s Park who added to their tally three minutes before the break; Kevin McNaughton was short with his header back to McCallum and Robbie Leitch nipped in to fire home.
Forfar came out for the second half knowing that the next goal was important and came close early on with Millar’s cross finding Easton; his shot was blocked on the line before sub Matthew Aitken hooked the rebound over the bar.
See, Aitken and Ben Starkey all failed to find the target in a poor second half with Patrick Cregg volleying well over the bar from outside the box as the game approached the final stages.
It wasn’t until injury time that the main talking point of the second half occurred; a Forfar attack failed to trouble the defence however Sean Burns appeared to raise an arm to the face of Easton off the ball. Play continued with Leitch sending a through ball for James MacLennan; Travis failed to deal with the danger and MacLennan took advantage for Dominic Docherty to tap home.
While play continued Easton looked to have retaliated after his incident with Burns, following some handbags from both sides the pair were booked.
