The opening goal arrived on 20 minutes when a hotly disputed penalty was awarded when Weaver was alleged to have caused an infringement when a corner was contested and the home side scrambled the ball clear.

Scott Jones drove the gift home despite the young custodian’s attempt going the right way.

The home side were rocked by the setback, but the backline superbly marshalled by Mark Camm held firm.

The defensive qualities inspired the home side and gave the foundation to build up a period of pressure and deservedly pulled level on 39 minutes.

James McCann nipped in to pinch the ball only to be tripped by O’Neil’s desperate attempt to prevent the Tevie midfielder being through on goal with a penalty awarded.

And Danny Fletcher dealt up the punishment when he calmly sent Lawrie the wrong way to make it 1-1 at the break.

Teversal pushed for a winner and a period of sustained pressure reaped its reward on 79 minutes Tevie Skipper Sargent reacted quickest after Dave Cockerill’s shot had been saved to make it 2-1.
