Lucky to get a point as we were awful for most of the game. Connolly and Ross did nothing all night, passing way too slack all game and slow build up from the back. Our night was summed up by MacDonald letting a ball slide through his legs and out for a corner.

Our "fans" on the pitch at the goal are a disgrace too. Some of them kids, some grown men, embarrassing.


Really, a last minute goal to salvage a draw in a derby game and some fans spill on to the pitch in celebration and there a disgrace, absolute nonsense.
Good point from the team last night, I had the dread that we would give them there first win after our injuries but we came good at the end.


I have some sympathy with Gary. He is maybe a BIT OTT with his comment but he is correct in that it should NOT be condoned in any way.
How would we have felt if the boot was on the other foot?.......just saying!

From the highlights, I did enjoy our players noising up the pars fans after we scored.

Couldn't agree more.

Just for clarity there wasnt a mass pitch invasion requiring mounted police to restore order.

There were 3 or 4 exuberant fans who leapt onto the perimeter to greet the players who had come across to celebrate with the fans. Order was restored in under a minute. No drama.

Having watched the goal on Raith TV several times i noticed how much Keiron Mitchell was involved in the build up. He chased back to win the ball from Kennedy to regain possession, then played a neat pass to Tait who laid it off to Spencer.

Well done young man. Hopefully this effort and desire will get you more game time in the near future.

Good eye, the lad’s hungry and will likely get some time Saturday again. I’m interesting in Arnott being on the bench with his broken bone…I heard late November bandied about, but…

I 100% condone people going mental and invading the pitch. It was completely merited given the circumstances and how smug the Pars fans had been before hand. We've sat through a pandemic, locked out of games and people expect a 90th minute goal in a derby not to lead people to get carried away?

I'd far rather have people passionately celebrating the team compared to some of the shouts from our fans last night. One guy telling take to "just go to Easter Road" (that's a PG version btw) after he misplaced a pass. Folk screeching to get the ball up the pitch then moaning when Aiden Connolly didn't win a header.

100% agree, hysterical over reaction by some on here

Elation and a certain amount of over exuberance you can understand given the circumstances but at the end of the day you shouldn't be crossing the advertising boards.

We've all seen it and some of us have probably done it I know I have in the past (SPL Promotion against Dumbarton and CCP semi at Perth v Airdrie) but at the end of the day it's against the rules and if its something the club could be fined for then for me sorry but it's not on.

If the same situation arose in an old firm game there'd likely be a riot, not quite the same thing here but passions were high and it could have lead to violence if not at the time then later. We all saw the muppets they have in their support. I don't think it would take too much to set them off.

Go to the 34 minute mark and you can hear the commentator, Jock Brown, laying into the fans for going onto the pitch after the semi final back in 1994.
I was one of those on the pitch and I suppose that was far worse than the handful that was on the pitch on Tuesday. If the Airdrie fans had taken then hump and met us on the pitch we could have had a riot. Can't remember what, if any, action was taken against the club back then.

The big difference between the pitch invasions back in the 90s was that they happened after, rather than during, the game.

The slightly disappointing thing about Tuesday was that it delayed the restart, when we should have been wanting the game restarted as quickly as possible to kick the Pars when they were down. Poplatník rushed into the net to retrieve the ball to try for a quick restart.

On the flip side, fans invading the pitch to celebrate with players probably reduces the chances of players picking up bookings for running to celebrate with the fans.

On another note - just watched the highlights of the Pars game at Arbroath yesterday and their defending of set-pieces was absolutely risible. Just a pity we've let them off the hook twice due to us not having anyone who can deliver high-quality dead balls consistently.
