Glenafton made four changes to the side that started against Kilwinning last Saturday. In came James Hart, Craig Pettigrew, Ollie Rowe and Hugh Kerr for David Markey, Ross Fisher, Darren Curtis and Aaaron Miller. While former Glenafton midfielder Michael Wardrope started for Auchinleck.
In a tight and competitive local derby both sides had decent chances to break the deadlock in what eneded as a goal-less first half. The best chance for the Glens came from a corner kick on 33 minutes only for keeper Andy Leishman to pull of a fine save from the head of former Talbot player Calvin Kemp and with Jordan Ryan’s attempt to bury the loose ball hitting the side-netting. The visitors were denied a half-time lead after keeper James Hart tipped a low shot from Keir Samson round the post.
The second half followed a similar pattern with very little between the sides. Glens came close to breaking the deadlock only for Leishman to pull off great from a couple of headers from striker Hugh Kerr. As the match drew to a close Keir Samson passed up a chance to put the visitors on 82 minutes only for his free header from close range to drift wide of target. However, with two minutes to go Gareth Armstrong’s deflected low drive from the edge of the box found the net to put Talbot ahead. Try as they might the home side fell short of salvaging point in added time.
