Formartine United 2-2 Deveronvale

The game started at a hectic pace with the first decent chance falling to Formartine, McKay had a free header from 7 yards and he may think he could have done better.

Devronvale shortly after that had an even better chance after Andy Shearer spilled a through ball and Watt should have done better from 5 yards out.

Both teams had many crosses into the box but just couldn’t find that end product. It took until the 43rd minute to break the deadlock ­- a good ball from Watt into Martin Charlesworth resulted in good control from him and he slotted it underneath Shearer.

Half time: Formartine 0-1 Devronvale

The second half started with Formartine on the front foot with a good acrobatic effort by McKeown. Formartine players claimed it hit off the hand of a Devronvale player, although nothing was given by referee Ryan Milne.

Shortly after that Devronvale took advantage of a poor defensive header by Smith which gave the ball to Cowie down the right-hand side. A good cross from him into Martin Charlesworth saw the striker do well from about 8 yards out to fire the ball high in to the net past Shearer to make it 0-2 to Devronvale.

After the second goal Formartine took full control dominating the possession but the Vale defence stood strong. Devronvale always looked dangerous on the counter and could have easily have easily added to their lead.

Late on into the game a controversial penalty was given for a push on McKeown by Henry  to give Formartine a lifeline. It looked a harsh decision it was given and ex Keith marksman Cammy Keith placed it to the left hand side of the net past Darren McConnachie who went the same way but just couldn’t get there.

Formartine were pushing for the equaliser and it came late into stoppage time with a throw-in on the left-hand side worked into Anderson and he finished it really well to cap off another late show from United.

Manager Ally Macleod may feel unlucky that his new look Devronvale side only got a point but he can’t criticize the effort and desire his players showed.  Also Formartine boss Steve Paterson probably feels the same with them dominating huge amount of possession and just not turning that into goals.
