United face fight for points

ELLON United were unable to win their match against Maud at the Meadows on Tuesday night and had to be content with yet another draw as the result finished 1-1. United took a 9th minute lead through Ross Forsyth, who headed home a fine cross from Keith Reid. Maud hit back, however, in the 30th minute when the visitors took full advantage of overly hesitant defending by United on the hard, bumpy pitch, with Ligertwood giving Ross Buchanan no chance as he struck home.

United’s one point from their draw with Maud puts them two points ahead of Longside in their battle to avoid finishing second bottom, and with United having three games left to Longside’s two, the onus is still on United to pick up the crucial points which will ensure safety.
