Sunday, 05 November 2017 14:09

The ‘Loons’ recorded only their second victory of the campaign, their first under Jim Weir’s stewardship with a dramatic but in the end well deserved 4-3 victory at Coatbridge yesterday.

The win also lifts the Station Park side off the bottom of the table and will have the fans looking forward with keen anticipation to the visit of East Fife this Saturday.

Rovers took an early lead in Saturday’s contest, Alan Trouten netting from the penalty spot in the fourth minute. The visitors levelled on the ten minute mark with a goal originally credited to David Cox, but now officially ranked as an Alan Reid own goal by the match officials.

It was 1-1 at the break, the home side restoring their lead through Connor Shields in the 56th minute. The visitors though rallied immediately and took a firm grip on proceedings from then on in, aided by some positive substitutions.

David Cox equalised with a close range header the hour mark, before he put the Athies ahead for the first time in the contest seventeen minutes later. Josh Peters then netted a decisive fourth in the last minute of the ninety, Sean Higgins scoring a consolation third for the home side deep into added on time.
