Airdrieonians 1 v 1 Albion Rovers

Alistair Love earned RoversĀ a deserved point in a draw this afternoon at Airdrie.

Midfielder Ross Davidson wasn’t too far away when he launched a shot from distance, but it was Airdrieonians who took the lead, Bryan Prunty heading home from a wide delivery.

Just four minutes before the interval Rovers equalized, Paul Willis seeing his penalty saved by Neil Parry, however, the rebound fell invitingly for Love, whose shot was guided into the net.

Resulting in a nervy finish, with only seconds remaining Rovers were reduced to ten men, the referee judging substitute John Gemmell to have kicked out at an Airdrieonians player.

Player/manager Darren Young said after the game:”It was a good point given that we were away from home and being honest it was probably a fair result.

“We were probably a little unlucky with the disallowed goal, the referee said there was a bit of pushing and shoving going on in the box, I didn’t see it though.”

Young added: “It was a much better performance from us in the second half, but I thought overall, with the ball we could’ve done a lot better, the standards we’ve set during the season made me a bit disappointed that we didn’t see more of that today.

“We’re delighted to get a point though, hopefully next weekend against Cowdenbeath we’ll get back to winning ways.”
