Dundonald 2 - 1 Haws

Tonight saw the Haws visit Dundonald Blubell in the local derby. Again the Haws started slow and gave away a penalty just 5 minutes in. The first attempt was disallowed as players had encroached the box and Stuart Hall saved the retake. Unfortunately just 3 minutes later Dundonald took the lead with a John Martin strike. Some poor refereeing lead to Haws manager being sent off from the sidelines for expressing his opinion. 
The Haws held onto half time and returned showing a lot more positivity to their play which eventually paid off with a Callum Adamson cross tucked away by Captain Rikki Dair. This was followed by a sustained period of Haws pressure until Dundonald broke and Rory Harrower made a challange which resulted in a second yellow card putting the Haws down to ten men less than 5 minutes later Dundonald broke again shrugging of Russell Grierson only to be taken out by Darrin Wright. Darrin received a straight Red card whilst Russell got a yellow. 
9 men Haws were hanging on until the 92nd minute when a ball into the box was eventually forced in by Barry Sibanda. A further 2 minutes and the ref blew his whistle to leave the Haws pointless and desperatley disappointed. 
The Haws travel to Camelon on Saturday where they need to dig deep and try and keep 11 men on the park.
