Edinburgh City 1-3 Dumbarton

SPFL Tier 3 Playoff Final, First Leg, Ainslie Park, 17/5/21.

Well. Where did that come from?

I thought we had played quite well first half and had the better opportunities but we had fallen a wee bit out of it even if they hadn’t had a shot on goal. I must confess when they scored, out of the blue really, (Sam Ramsbottom could maybe have done better?) I thought the tie was over.

But we came out and started to get at them.

Unusually a short corner worked for us, Ross Forbes playing a wicked cross on to Ryan McGeever’s head. No doubt where that was going. Our first ever goal at Ainslie Park.

The second was due to Forbes driving at the defence. His shot wasn’t properly dealt with by the keeper and Tomas Brindley, even though he hit the rebound directly at him, still had enough on the ball to get it past him.

The third was Forbes again, putting in the free-kick sweetly for Morgyn Neill’s bullet header.

Three assists for Ross Forbes. His legs may have gone but he’s still capable of delivering a free kick.

It’s still only half time though. Second leg at the Rock on Thursday. If they score first things will doubtless get jittery.
