Spartans and Gretna 2008 shared the points in a goal-less draw in a game of few opportunities in the Central Taxis Premier Division last night.
Douglas Samuel, the Spartans manager, said: “It was an extremely tight affair on a difficult, bumpy pitch with a slight wind and a bit of rain. I think that both teams defended well on the night and it was a stuffy game in which I’m not sure if either side did enough to win it.
“We won a point on the road and it is a point more towards achieving our target.
“We have never said it would be easy to win the title because we are up against a lot of good teams. That was probably our toughest away fixture that we have played all season so far.”
Spartans: Flockhart, Manson, Cennerazzo, Sivewright, O’Donnell, Grant, Beesley, Motion, Bremner, McLeod, Henretty. Subs: Martin, Ferguson, Wringe, MacCuish, MacKinnon.
