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."

m only commenting on this (I don't care about Liverpool) because F365's twitter said I had call Matt Stanger a tw*t (which I don't agree with anyway) but I just wanted to be the first. Am I the first?

Trial And Error Rather Than Transition

S

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
