The Swifts wanted to get back to to winning ways in the new year against a difficult Coupar Angus team in a game which was poised to be a cracker.

Sime controlled the ball brilliantly and whipped in a low cross. Bell latched onto the cross but could only control inside the box wide of the goal. Bell turned and found striking partner Booth who volleyed home the opener GOAL 1-0 Jeanfield.

Jeanfield continued to press in an attempt to double their lead, however it was short lived. On the 24th minute the Coupar keeper took a goal kick which was missed by leaping Henderson and bounced through to the Jeanfield defence. After a couple of ricochets the ball fell to Coupar player on the half way line. The player played a defence splitting pass through the middle to a gambling striker putting him 1 on 1 with rushing Morrow. The striker calmly slotted the ball into the net for the equaliser GOAL 1-1 Coupar Angus.

Jeanfield push from their centre to get their noses back in front and did so 5 minutes later. Again McCabe at the heart of things launching in a corner which was flicked on by Booth and Defender Hope threw his body at the ball forcing it into the net GOAL 2-1 Jeanfield.

The second half began as the first half ended with both teams trying to play football and going for goal. The pitch was very heavy and both teams started to tire as the clock ticked away.

Coupar Angus started to get desperate and started throwing everything at Jeanfield which created many gaps. Most notable was when the Coupar keeper came way out of his box and lost the ball about 40 yards from his goal. Bell had only one thing in mind, however his legs had different ideas. He hit it as hard as he could towards the open goal, unfortunately he didn’t manage to reach it.

With minutes to go Coupar Angus put in a corner into the box which just wasn’t cleared and after it bounced about a little the Coupar centre half placed his shot into the corner of the net for the equaliser GOAL 2-2 Coupar Angus.

Jeanfield couldn’t believe they didn’t kill off the game and move through next round.
