Luckless Legion take point

In a game that brought about few goals, drama or excitement, Legion gained a share of the honours with a 1-1 draw at home to Linton Hotspur.

Following a drab no scoring first half, Legion edged ahead midway through the second half when David Fraser grabbed his first goal of the season in putting away a Callum Hope corner kick.

Linton got on level terms with four minutes of the match remaining.

Summing up the game, Legion team boss Clinton Sharkey commented, “It was a terrible match, which wasn’t surprising as conditions were awful. Neither side could play football on a really muddy pitch. We didn’t have much luck either as we lost three players through injuries. Scott Duncan ended up in hospital with a badly gashed knee after colliding with the post when making a goal line clearance. Although Linton scored late on I suppose a draw was a fair enough result. On the bright side though, we are unbeaten since the turn of the year and I am quite happy with this”.
