For much of that it was looking like another Morton or Ayr game. Totally dominant but couldn't score. Lewis Smith had a superb first half and had a screamer superbly saved. Then Mullin somehow blasted over from ten yards when all he needed to do was tap it in. Popescu, excellent all night, had the first of two headers cleared off the line. There was a bit of a lull in the second half but we were still the better side. Then Lewis threaded a beautiful ball through to Mullin just inside their half. He ran on, drew the keeper and it looked goalbound but sub Andy Ryan made sure. Thoroughly deserved. Ideally Mullin would have scored to make up for his miss but the defender may have hooked it clear were it not for Ryan.
Mimnaugh was excellent, Hughes and Redfern decent. Eastie solid. MacDonald a threat on the wing. MOTM between Smith and Popescu for me, with Lewis shading it for that pass.
Crowd only 942, with 158 from Dumfries. Play like that more often and folk will return.
