Forfar Athletic 1 Cowdenbeath 1

Sunday, 13 March 2016 10:34


A goal for each side in the opening three minutes saw Forfar and Cowdenbeath share the points as the result dragged both sides deeper into a relegation battle with Brechin winning their game.

Andy Ryan had the Loons ahead after two minutes but Greig Spence equalised less than sixty seconds later for the Blue Brazil.

Ryan opened the scoring after a neat passage of play from the hosts, Omar Kader playing the ball to Danny Denholm and his low cross was knocked home by the in form Ryan.
Cowdenbeath had equalised a minute later following a poor Derek Young pass back, Spence racing on to it before rounding Darren Hill and placing the ball in the back of the net.
Both sides had chances to take the lead in the first half; Danny Denholm having a fantastic run from his own half only to be denied yards from goal and Ryan having another shot blocked while Spence couldn’t find a way past Hill before his effort was knocked wide.
Michael Kennedy had a long range shot straight at Grant Adam just after the half hour mark before Swankie set up Ryan in the 38th minute; the former Hamilton striker firing low and wide.
Lewis Milne hit the crossbar for the visitors shortly after half time but it was Forfar who had the majority of opportunities in the second half. Denholm had a header fly inches past the post before Thomas O’Brien almost netted against his former club, his free kick was pushed wide by Adam.
Andy Ryan had two great chances in quick succession; firstly he saw a shot parried with the follow up hitting the post before another effort in the 75th minute hit the side netting after a deflection.
The Loons were close to netting a winner in the final ten minutes but just couldn’t force the ball in the net no matter how hard they tried.
