Glendale’s mini slump continued as they went down again this time to Stonehaven Athletic in a Div 1 North league game.
Dale started well enough and bossed the early exchanges eventually taking the lead after 15 minutes when Danny Lechner chased down a clearance from the home defence and forced his way into the box only to be hauled down for a certain penalty which GRAEME OAG duly dispatched. Mark Robb twice went close to adding to this but his efforts were blocked but as half time approached Dale were well worth their lead.
The 2nd half saw a transformation from the home side however as Dale struggled to get out of their own half but with strong defending from the recalled Simon Darwin and Neil Humphries Glendale seldom looked like conceding until the 70th minute when Alex McMahon challenged Herneil the box and to Dale’s amazement the referee pointed to the spot. HERNEIL picked himself up and sent Muirhead the wrong way to score.
Worse was to follow when in 80 minutes a corner for the home side saw GUNN unchallenged to score with a 6 yard header.
A poor second half around from Glendale who are in need of a win to boost flagging confidence.
