Rovers lose first points

Gala Rovers 2

Pencaitland 4


GALA Rovers suffered their first dropped points of the season, as their East Lothian visitors punished poor defending.

Top-of-the-table Pencaitland scored two goals in five first-half minutes before Des Sutherland’s penalty a minute before the break gave Rovers hope.

After a series of substitutions, Gala were back level 13 minutes from time when sub Jordan Steele saw his shot deflected into the Pencaitland net for an own goal.

Gala kept pressing but two soft goals meant the hosts succumbed to the league leaders.
