Honours were shared between the landlords and the tenants in this pre-season game at Ochilview. The Warrior’s got the upper hand in the early stages of the game and they took the lead through a superb Andy Stirling strike that looked a goal as soon as he struck it.
The Warriors continued to press and Grant Anderson was unable to take advantage of a Stephen Thomson cross but Anderson’s poor header was just missed at the back post by Ross Clark. In the 17th minute Anderson became the supplier but Paul Quinn was unable to take advantage and headed over the bar. Another chance went astray when the Warrior’s missed from close range.
After the interval the Warriors failed to create the opportunities of the first half though Andy Stirling came close to doubling the lead seeing an effort parried out by Michael Andrews whose registration allowing to play him on loan from Falkirk had just cleared that morning..
The Shire eventually equalised in the closing stages when Scott Johnston took advantage of poor defending to rifle in a shot that went in at Chris McCluskey’s near post.
The match saw the managers have differing opinions with how the game had went with John Coughlin unhappy with the second half performance whilst Jim McInally was delighted at how his team performed in their first outing of the season
