Forfar Athletic 4 Stirling Albion 1

Sunday, 18 September 2016 08:53


Forfar run out comfortable victors in what looked like a tight game all the way through until the closing stages.

Stirling seemed to start on the front foot and Eddie Ferns had an early shot just wide of Grant Adams post and shortly afterwards Darren Smith was through one on one with Grant Adams but went down and the referee decided it was simulation and booked him with no penalty decision. Almost Forfar’s first foray on the Stirling goal resulted in a corner, which David Cox swung into the six yard box and Andy Munro was brave and stopped to get his head on the ball and force it past Chris Smith. Stirling equalised just before half-time with Sean Dickson right footed shot flew low into Grant Adams right hand corner.


Second half took on same patter as first half with both teams pressing with Grant Adams on top form smothering several good chances for Stirling. Gavin Swankie had a shot just wide but then was instrumental in the second goal, passing the ball across the 18 yard line which Josh Peters latched onto first time and despatched into the net. Forfar started to dominate from this point on and had several chances where they could have got shots off but decided to take that extra touch and the chance was lost, but increased their lead when Josh Peters recieved a pass from Marc Scott at the edge of the box and quick feet saw him make the space to place his shot into the corner of the net. The scoring was completed with a great run up the wing from Jamie Bain who played a good ball into Danny Denholm’s stride for his to drive the ball low past Chris Smith.
