Longworth rescues point for Queen’s
It’S as you were in the Third Division with all four fixtures ending all square.
Second placed Queen’s Park drew 2-2 at Hampden with Annan. The Galabank side took the lead on 21 minutes when Martin McNiff scored from 30 yards, but Jamie Longworth broke a five-month goal drought when he headed in from close range to level just before the hour.
Annan substitute Ally Love scrambled the ball home to give his side the lead with six minutes to go, but straight from the kick-off Longworth showed that his goal touch was definitely back when he slammed home from 20 yards to tie the scores and cut Rangers lead at the top to 19 points.
Hampden head coach Gardner Speirs said: “We were poor in the first half when all of our passes seemed to go back the way. We were better in the second and it was good to see that Jamie has rediscovered his way to goal.”
Recently-appointed Annan boss Jim Chapman said: “In my two games in charge we have drawn with promotion-chasing sides Peterhead and Queen’s Park. I have seen lots of good things and also a fair amount of naivety, especially in the way we gave away the second goal just seconds after we had gone in front.”
Third-placed Montrose came from two goals behind to draw with a visiting East Stirlingshire side that led through David Greenhill’s fine early brace. Martin Boyle scored the first goal since his return from loan to Dundee seven minutes from half-time. David Gray, netted eight minutes from time to secure a point for the Links Park side. Peterhead’s Rory McAllister shot home from 25 yards after five minutes against Berwick Rangers at Balmoor, but Darren Lavery replied 60 seconds later in a 1-1 draw. Clyde and Elgin also ended 1-1 with Stefan McCluskey netting for the Bully Wee and Paul Millar replying 12 minutes from time.
