Kirriemuir Thistle vs Tayport 23/03/24

Tayport suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat against Kirriemuir Thistle.

The game began slow with both teams fighting for possession with the ball moving up and down the pitch for the first 15 minutes. The crucial moment just after this, with Kirriemuir breaking the deadlock at the 18th minute mark.

As the game progressed, Tayport showed promise with several chances created in the 24th minute, but their attacks lacked precision, failing to trouble Kirriemuir’s goalkeeper. The intensity of the match heightened, leading to a yellow card for Tayport's Kieran Crichton in the 37th minute.


The second half saw strategic changes from both sides. Tayport brought on Mackenzie Williamson and Greg McColm in the 62nd minute, replacing Nick Fletcher and Kieran Crichton. After these substitutions the fight for a goal was on. After some time defending, Greg McColm received a yellow card, adding pressure to the already tense Tayport side.


Tayport had more substitutions in the 75th minute, introducing Innes Barbour and Ryan Smith in place of Ewan White and Marc Van Der Kuhl, in a bid to create more attacking opportunities. Kirriemuir had an opportunity to double their lead in the 78th minute with a penalty. However, the spot-kick was squandered, providing Tayport more of a chance for a 1-1 finish.


As the match entered added time, the match intensified. Jamie Gill of Tayport received a yellow card in the 91st minute, reflecting the high stakes and intensity of the closing stages. In a thrilling twist, Mackenzie Williamson thought he had equalised for Tayport in the 94th minute with a goal, but the joy was short-lived as the goal was disallowed for offside.


The match concluded with Kirriemuir Thistle holding onto their slender lead, securing a hard-fought victory against a determined Tayport side. Despite Tayport’s performance and late push for an equaliser, their efforts were ultimately not enough to overturn the early goal conceded.
