SALTIRE THISTLE 5 – 4 LIONS
Goals from Sean M (3) and James H
The Lions’ cup run comes to an end in an enthralling cup tie which saw them come back from behind on 3 occasions.
Sean M’s hattrick pegged the visitors back each time in an end-to-end match which saw action right up until the final whistle.
The Lions had the chance to take control of the fixture when they had a spirited period of possession in the second half, but it wasn’t converted into vital goals.
Despite the knock backs Nottingham faced, even when Saltire secured a two-goal cushion in the final 10 mins, the Lions once again displayed their never say die attitude. They continued to press for opportunities to claw back the scoreline and James’ long distance goal was the final kick of the game.
