The visitors were fast out of the blocks and played with a ferocious intensity straight from the kick off. With barely two minutes on the clock the energetic Terence Doherty had already had a crack at goal from the edge of the box. His effort narrowly missed the target but was an early reminder to the hosts of the quality he possesses.
