Rovers make it hard for City

Edinburgh City1

Gala FR0

Gala Fairydean Rovers made the leaders fight all the way to gather full points in last weekend’s Lowland League encounter.

Daryl Devlin came into the heart of the GFR defence, replacing Craig Mcbride who was ill, and he marshalled the back four throughout the 90 minutes.

Chances went begging on both sides in the opening 45, leaving the half-time scoreboard bereft.

Indeed it wasn’t until the 81st minute that the hosts notched the winning goal through John Dunn.
