Match Report


The result was in doubt right to the final whistle. With five minutes left, Forfar's Newman looked to have snatched a magnificent winner. But a brilliant twisting dive by Gallagher fingertipped his fierce drive over the bar.

Bankies were soon off the mark as Thomson was downed by keeper Milne and Fallon slammed home the spot kick.

Cooper equalised from close range and a brilliant solo effort by Newman saw him clip in an angled drive for number two.

Bankies came back with an explosive double. Bell cashed in on slack defensive work and White scored after a brilliant run.

Jimmy Kyles restored equality when he nodded home a Cooper free kick, Lowe was booked for a foul on Henderson,
