Cammie Ross strike saves point for Heriot-Watt

Yesterday’s game between Heriot-Watt University and Stirling University, the first East of Scotland League match to be played on the indoor pitch at Oriam, produced a point apiece for the sides after a 2 – 2 draw. Chasing the game after going behind early on, Heriot-Watt had plenty of possession but took until eleven minutes from time before finally getting an equaliser when Jackson Barker ran through on a pass from Cammie Ross to slide the ball into the corner of the net.

Just two minutes later, the Watt side fell behind again, but with a couple of minutes left on the clock, Cammie Ross made up for an earlier penalty miss by slamming home an angled drive to secure a share of the spoils.

Next Saturday, the Watt makes the short trip across the Forth to Recreation Park to face Burntisland Shipyard. This has become the Club’s bogey venue; despite some good performances, it has lost on each of its last four visits. The match doesn’t come at a great moment in the season, as after a patchy start, the “Shippy” has made some good signings and recent performances have suggested better times could be on the way. Head Coach Banji Koya will hope that some of those who missed the game yesterday will be available for selection. From the squad for the previous game, against Peebles Rovers six weeks before, the missing names included top scorer Anton Dowds, defenders Jack Spence, Alex Snoddy and Jens Willassen; and midfielders Niko Giovanovits and Gregor MacDonald.
