RCA started really well and went ahead. Hassan won the ball on the left and played a crossfield ball which evaded Robson and fell to Larkin who slotted the ball past Liversedge.
The ill discipline which has blighted the season so far for RCA supporters reared its ugly head again as McNab was judged to have fouled Ferguson on the edge of the box and was shown a very harsh straight red. That being said it was probably a yellow and the player had already been cautioned.
Within minutes a rash challenge from Gordon earned him a booking and from the free kick the ball was played to Dodds on the left and his cross was met by Micky Rae who headed home past new signing Sam Guthrie.
