HALF TIME | BSC GLASGOW 1-2 KELTY HEARTS Swifty’s half-time team talk seemed to do wonder as BSC were charging up the flank in the opening ten of the second period.

All BSC Glasgow had to do was see is out and they would hand the league leaders only their second league defeat of the season as well as their first home loss. Danny Ashe smashed it straight into the wall and yellow shirts clambered to clear it for a corner. Both sides spent the opening exchanges trying to feel each other out and there were numerous niggly fouls. A few changes from manager Stephen Swift to the side that gained a point from Edusport; Robbie Duncan started, replacing John Tennent, Tam Orr replaced Martin Grehan and John Mitchell filled in for skipper Ross McMillan who was out for the weekend due to illness. As the last ten minutes settled in, it was nail-biting stuff. Not to worry however, because a minute later, Martin Grehan, who was picked out for special praise by the manager post-match, capitalised on a defensive slip from Kelty to slot the ball into the left corner. Great passing continued throughout the first half between Mills and Strachan as a nice set up led to a Ross Lindsay’s shot being curled just over the crossbar.
