    The Manager's verdict of the Kirrie cup defeat was straight to the point!

    "In a match where there were no players in a Broughty jersey receiving pass marks, we got what we deserved from the game, which was nothing!

    “They have received many plaudits throughout the course of the season but last night was most certainly not one of them.

    “All credit to Kirrie however, who were definitely up for the game and were deserved winners.

    “A most disappointing result and evening from our point of view, we must re-group, and quickly, going into our last two league games coming up soon.

    Broughty are out of the Challenge Cup after losing 2-0 to Kirrie Thistle at Whitton Park tonight.

    A goal down at half-time, the second period was dominated by a Broughty team in which James Russell’s wing play was a notable feature in the early part of the half.

    Russell (pictured) then moved inside to play just behind the two main strikers and although chances continued to be created, the Fed just could not get the ball in the net.

    As so often happens in such circumstances, Kirriemuir got a second goal on the counter and the tie was theirs.

    “As I have said before, there are fine margins in football games and lady luck has definitely deserted us in these last three cup ties versus West End, St Andrews and tonight against Kelty.

    “I am extremely proud of my players once more and they can take great confidence from their efforts. Although no-one at the Club likes to lose, there are plenty of positives to take out of our performances.

    “They once more received rave reviews from a variety of sources and more than competed against a strong Kelty side. We wish them all the best in the competition.

    “We both win and lose as a team and I very rarely single out players but I felt the performance of Paul Morrison, considering he hasn’t even trained this year never mind played, is worthy of note, as he showed his usual battling qualities. He received the call at 4 o'clock in the afternoon by myself and it was good to see him back in a Broughty jersey once again.

    “Without stating the obvious, the recent amount of games has definitely had a bearing on our extensive casualty list and accordingly I have given the players the next few days off to recover.

    “We will all recharge and meet up for our quarter final tie versus Kirrie at Whitton Park next

    Broughty Athletic entertained Super League team Kelty Hearts at Whitton Park last night in an East of Scotland cup tie. This was the Fed's fourth match in eight days and this tough schedule had taken its toll with only thirteen fit players available. There was also a starting place for midfielder Paul Morrison, his first start of the season.

    The game started at a fantastic pace with both teams showing signs of good passing and movement. The opening exchanges were even, with play mainly restricted to the midfield area.

    Broughty created their first real chance of the game on twenty minutes when Russell weaved his way passed two defenders before seeing his shot well saved by visiting goalie Fleming.

    Next up was Kelty who saw a fantastic strike by Mauchlan on twenty-six minutes crash from the underside of the bar from twenty-five yards with goalie Anderson beaten.

    It took until the fortieth minute to see the next goalmouth action, with both teams seeming to cancel each other out in a fascinating match. MacDonald worked an opportunity for himself only to see his shot go just over.

    The last chance of the half fall to Kelty when a twenty-five yard free kick went inches by the post.

    Half Time: Broughty Athletic 0 Kelty Hearts 0.

    The second half picked up where the first had left off with some excellent passages of play. Chances were created at both ends of the park, with the two goalkeepers coming out the better in one-on-ones with opposition strikers.

    The best chances for the Fed fell to Russell and MacDonald with the width of the post saving the visitors on both occasions. Kelty were also having a good spell of pressure with striker Martin creating problems with his pace.

    The turning point of the game occurred in the eighty-second minute when Russell was needlessly sent off for a second bookable offence in quick succession. The visitors took the lead immediately afterwards when LAWRIE fired them in from with a fine strike from twenty-five yards.

    Broughty didn’t lie down though and had it not been for another fantastic save by Fleming from R Kenny the tie would have gone to penalties.

    The referee blew for time directly afterwards to bring to an end to another thoroughly enjoyable game.

    Full Time: Broughty Athletic 0 Kelty Hearts 1

    Broughty Athletic: Anderson, MacDonald (Farrell), Bertie, Russell, Kirk, R.Kenny, Myles, Murdoch, Mathieson, Morrison, Proudfoot

    Kelty Hearts: Fleming, Gordon Finlay, C.Courts, Graeme Finlay, T.Courts, Moffat, Smart, McDowell, Martin, Mauchlen, Currie

    Broughty’s interest in the East of Scotland Cup ended last night at Whitton Park when the Fed’s injury-hit side were beaten 1-0 by Kelty Hearts.

    Broughty'e next match is on Monday 12 May when Kirriemuir Thistle return to Whitton Park, this time on Challenge Cup business. It is to be hoped that this five day gap between matches will enable the Fed's considerbale injury list to be reduced.

    The following Saturday, 17 May, Broughty will make the short journey to Forfar to face the local Albion in the penultimate League fixture opf the season.

    If the number of injuries is a true indicator, then the amount of games currently being played by Broughty Athletic is now officially taking its toll!

    Definitely out against Kelty Hearts, for a variety of reasons, (but mainly injured) are Ben Esson, Blair Mudie, Ross Cormack, Ian McKenna and Paul Kenny. Rated extremely doubtful (the Manager doesn’t
    think they will make it) are John Cameron and Ian McLeod.

    This leaves the Broughty boss with a squad of just thirteen, including two goalies, to choose from.

    Broughty welcomed mid-table Kirrie Thistle to Whitton Park last night, for what was the Fed's third league fixture in six days. Manager Kenny Cameron made one change to the starting line up, with Barry Murdoch replacing the ill John Cameron.

    Broughty again started the match brightly, forcing three corners in as many minutes. They took the lead in the ninth minute when RUSSELL saw a free kick deflected by the wall into the net. The Fed almost doubled their lead through Myles saw a header drift just over.

    Kirrie were next to threaten when Scott rounded keeper Cargill, only to see Myles pop up to clear off the line when it seemed a certain goal.

    It was real end-to-end stuff now and in thirty-three minutes superb wing play from Russell saw a Murdoch shot just cleared off the line for a corner.  Broughty did eventually go two up in forty minutes when RUSSELL again found the corner of the net shooting from just outside the box. He almost completed his hat-trick just on half time when he saw a free kick go inches wide.

    Half time: Broughty Athletic 2 Kirriemuir Thistle 0

    Kirriemuir were right back in the game on fifty minutes when ATTIGAN fired home from close range after some sloppy defending.

    The goal of the night came on seventy minutes when O'LEARY finished off a fine move by chipping the ball over the advancing keeper.

    The game was over as a contest in the eightieth minute when O'LEARY again finished off a great move down the right with a fantastic left foot shot from the edge of the box.

    Kirrie's Kettles was red carded on time for remarks towards Referee Williamson.

    Full Time: Broughty Athletic 4 Kirriemuir Thistle 1

    Broughty Athletic: Cargill, Kirk, Murdoch (Mudie), O'Leary, Farrell (Mathieson), R. Kenny, Myles, Bertie, MacDonald, Russell, MacLeod (Proudfoot)

    Kirriemuir Thistle: Flick, Allardyce, Mackie, Russell, Brand, Attagan, Kettles, Stewart, Scott, Taylor, Farquarson

    Manager's comments: "A fantastic game of football to entertain the healthy crowd. We were professional in the way we went about our job tonight and I am obviously delighted with both performance and result"
