Carnoustie returned to action at Farquharson Park against Scone Thistle on Saturday but the game failed to reach its conclusion following a serious leg injury to defender Harvey Dailly.
Gowfers boss had already been forced in to changes with Gordon Macdonald and Ryan Dignan injured with Ryan Roche suspended and it was a difficult afternoon for The Gowfers before the injury.
Carnoustie struggled to get used to the changes against a Scone side desperate to make an impression on new boss Paul Martin. The home side were awarded a penalty just before the half hour after Dailly was penalised for a push in the box but the spot kick was blasted high over the bar. However, Thistle took the lead on 43 minutes when Rory Lamond seized on a defensive slip to lob the ball over Jamie Robbie in to the back of the net.
The second half was much of the same , however, Carnoustie began to get a foothold and looked like they would equalise but events took over on the hour mark, the ball was on the Carnoustie left and Dailly went in to a challenge with a Scone player and finished up on the ground, the game was stopped immediately and once the seriousness of the injury was realised both sets of players left the field and with a delay in the arrival of the ambulance, the referee abandoned the game.
Carnoustie : Robbie, Steel, Clark, Winter, McPhee, Simpson, Dow, Dailly, Conway, Cooney, Martin
Subs : Cormack, Hearn, Cruickshank, Dignan, McGuire
