Pollok v Fauldhouse Utd (at Benburb)

Match Report by Christopher Dodds

Pollok wrapped up their pre season campaign with a professional 4-1 victory over Fauldhouse at New Tinto Park on Wednesday night. Academy graduate Mohamed Niang opened the scoring for the Lok eight minutes in. After being played in by Adam Forde from the left and tucking the ball into the bottom right corner.

Adam Forde doubled the lead just before the half hour mark from 12 yards after Stuart McCann was felled in the box after beating his man on the left wing. Forde stepped up with the sun in his eyes and hit a reverse shot with his left foot into the bottom right corner leaving the keeper with little chance.

Forde got himself his second and Lok?s third goal in the closing minutes of the first half. With some good attacking play. Niang clipped it into the feet of Bryan Young in the box from the right, with the midfielder deftly touching it back for Forde who made no mistake in dispatching the ball into the bottom left corner.

Fauldhouse responded in the second half, grabbing one back through David O?Donnell. Who received the knock on from Ben McGhee, he battled with skipper Paul Gallacher to curl it beyond Longmuir into the bottom left corner with a bit of help from the post from 18 yards.

Bryan Young capped off a fine performance following up from Stuart McCann?s well saved volley from 10 yards. The ball came over from the left, with McCann meeting it with a fine volley which JC Hutchison magnificently got a hand too. Young?s anticipation paid off as the ball landed at his feet and he stroked the ball home beyond the defender on the line to complete the scoring.

Lok starting line-up: Longmuir, Niang, Sideserf, Coutts, Gallacher, Brash, McGarvey, Fraser, S. McCann, Forde, Young. Subs: Trialist, Dachnowicz, Trialist, G. McCann, Johnson
