First Team Debuts


First Division Airdrie fought all the way in this Cup-tie and few could quibble with their right to a replay at Broomfield. Our first half performance brought few genuine openings. A couple of John Clark free-kicks being the main danger to the visitors. A free header for Kevin Gallacher from 10 yards in 42 minutes was a practice run for the real thing a minute later. Jim Mdnally sent over a cross from the right and Kevin Gallacher's downward header struck Lindsay's knee to help divert it past Martin.

On the resumption John Clark almost scored with a header and Paul Sturrocks shot was blocked by Martin's foot. Taking heart from these escapes Airdrie countered with more regular attacking flurries and gained reward when a Walker corner fell to Dave MacCabe who hammered in the equaliser.
