Carnoustie’s determination and incredible team spirit came to the for again as they came from behind, after letting a two goal lead slip, to earn a deserved point at Musselburgh.
Musselburgh started well but the Carnoustie back four held firm and dealt with the initial burst. Carnoustie scored twice in two minutes midway through the first half, the first came from the penalty spot courtesy of Gordon Macdonald after Liam Scott had been fouled in the box. Two minutes later, leading scorer Sam Simpson was on hand at the back post to convert a great cross from Robert Urquhart. The home side were stung in to action and pulled a goal back on the half hour through Ewan Ralton.
The home side came out all guns blazing and levelled on 63 minutes when Matti King crashed the ball home past Alan Cormack. Connor Spowart put the home side in front with fifteen minutes to go. Carnoustie showed a great spirit and lookedbto get back on level terms, there chance came with 3 minutes left as the referee pointed to the spot for a second time. With Macdonald already substituted, Simpson took responsibility and left Keiron Renton with no chance to earn a well deserved point.
Unfortunately for Carnoustie, Liam Scott had to be replaced when he suffered what appeared to be a bad shoulder injury.
