Blackburn opened the scoring in nine minutes when Dean MACARTHUR heading in a Craig Young corner and he doubled his tally when tapping home a ball that deflected to him from Andy McQuillan seven minutes later. On the half hour mark the visitors pulled a goal back with a looping header but McQUILLAN converted a Macarthur cross on the stroke of half time to restore the two goal lead.

Midway through the second half MACARTHUR sprung the offside trap to lob the ‘keeper and seal his hat-trick before he linked with Danny Campbell to cross for Gary CALVEY to net. CAMPBELL himself then got in on the scoring, lobbing the ‘keeper from the right angle of the eighteen yard box before turning provider once more by taking a Scott Mackie pass and delivering a low one onto the back post for CALVEY to stab home. MACARTHUR rounded off the scoring with his fifth of the evening two minutes from time, firing high into the roof of the net.
