Suspensions had robbed Lomas of three defenders, and the visitors opened the scoring through John Sutton on 15.

Rowan Vine levelled matters less than 90 seconds later before Andrew Driver restored the Edinburgh side's lead shortly before the break.

However, Steve MacLean equalised on the hour and Lomas singled out praise for David McCracken who returned from injury to provide emergency cover at the heart of the back four.

He said: "I don't normally give individual praise but I thought David was absolutely fantastic.

"To come back four weeks after suffering a triple fracture, which needed plating and screws to put it back together, I give him all the credit in the world.

"I also thought Tom Scobbie played well, playing out of position at centre-half.

"I give the lads credit for fighting back twice and if we'd had that break of the ball at the end then we could have gotten the win.

"I thought we shaded it and had we gone on to win the game no one would have had any complaints."

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
