Pars players taking on water while I`m contemplating wearing a vest under me jammies the night.
The ball was played upfield, and on to Gaston. Play stopped to allow Quitongo to receive treatment. May have been a nasty drop after his dive over Murdoch.

Re-start and the Ton are in the Pars half. A good pass by Forbes to Lindsay but stopped by Ash. Long ball down the near wing to Clark, on to Higgy turns but is tackled well by Nesbitt. Another good stop on the right by Talbot and the pars have another shout for a penalty as the balls comes off Clark in the box but again nothing given.
