Gaffer Murdo MacKinnon heaped praise on his sides performance at Loch Park on Saturday afternoon after a 0-0 draw ensured a Scottish Cup 4th Round Replay at Newlandsfield this Saturday.
In an evenly contested tie, Lok had the first chance of the game in the first few minutes with Stuart McCann?s rasping effort being tipped over by the sprawling McGarrity in the Glenafton net.
Matching his goalkeeping counterpart, Jordan Longmuir then produced a fine save keeping out Mick McCann?s header which was destined for the top right corner after McAusland pinged a great diagonal over the top.
In the Second Half the returning Adam Forde saw his ferocious volley blocked by McGarrity?s mid-rift. With Bryan Young?s follow up being blocked for a corner.
MacKinnon commented ?I?m really proud of the boys today, they performed excellently in a place thats hard to come and get points from. I thought personally we controlled the game at a good tempo and we possibly just edged it.
?Their keeper pulled off some incredible saves to deny us as did Jordan who was on top of his game today. It (the tie) was always going to be decided by a mistake or a bit of class, which is expected for two teams so evenly matched.
?I told them this is only half time and that we have to take the game to them back at home in-front of our fans. Something which we will prepare for considerably this week.
?Overall there?s still a bit of work to do but we?re still in the cup and hopefully we can put on a show on Saturday.?
That’s it – all over. Another draw for the Lok.
