Carnoustie manager Alan McSkimming admitted his side were lucky to get a draw after a disappointing second half performance against Camelon at Laing Park.
Both sides had there injury problems before the game but Carnoustie were able to welcome back Ewan Buggins from illness meaning Danny Millar dropped to the bench alongside Jamie Robbie who had recovered from his thigh injury but Alan Cormack was preferred between the posts after his Man Of The Match performance at Dundonald last weekend.
Carnoustie had the better of the first half and deserved to take the lead on 35 minutes. A Jamie McCabe header, from a Luke McGeehan free kick was cleared off the line but only as far as Pat Smith, he laid the ball off to Ewan Buggins and his pin point cross was once again met by McCabe who this time directed his header over David Kane in the visitors goal. The lead lasted a matter of seconds as Camelon equalised straight from the restart. A shot from outside the box cannoned back off the bar and Alan Sneddon headed the ball home from close range.
If the first half was Carnoustie’s then the second was all Camelon as the visitors dominated play as Carnoustie seemed to tire and struggled to get a foothold in the game, however they managed to hold out for a draw and a valuable point from a game that three months ago they would probably have lost.
Carnoustie remain in tenth place while Camelon are in sixth, there are now just four points separating Camelon and Hill of Beath in 13th place
