Luca Gasparotto, Airdrie

It looked as if the Rangers Canadian import had secured the Diamonds first victory of the season as he rose above the Stranraer defence to head home his first goal with the club.  It wasn’t meant to be, as Stranraer equalized in stoppage time.  The match ended 3-3.

Danny Stoney, Stranraer

Came on as a substitute in the 23rd minute for Jamie Longworth.

Calum Gallagher, Cowdenbeath

Gallagher was able to provide a glimmer of hope as he picked up a Neil Alexander rebound & slotted home a sprawling, equalizing goal against league leading Hearts.  The hope was fleeting as Cowdenbeath suffered a 5-1 defeat at Tynecastle.

Robbie Crawford, Morton

Played 79 minutes before being subbed out for tactical reasons in Morton’s 2-1 victory over Dunfermline Athletic.  It appears that it was a rather quiet outing for the Rangers loanee.

Barrie McKay, Raith Rovers

Made his debut as a 60th minute substitute after sitting out last week’s match against Rangers.  According to the club’s official site“McKay was getting involved & proving to be a very useful outlet for Rovers as Livingston started to control the play, going on a mazy run & [being] brought down just outside the Livi box.”  Later, McKay nearly scored for Rovers but his volley soared over the crossbar.  As Livingston continued to pressure on the hunt for an equalizing goal, McKay became the outlet for Rovers to spark counter attacks & to give the defence a reprise.  The club’s match report concluded with, “Barrie McKay looks to be a very exciting prospect with his pace & his ability to beat defenders.”

Craig Halkett, Clyde

Missed the match v. Arbroath with an injury.

Tom Walsh, Stenhousemuir

Fully recovered from injury, Walsh made his debut for Stenhousemuir in their 1-0 loss to Peterhead.  Walsh did all that he could to equalize after Peterhead went up in the third minute.  Walsh had four shots, with one coming on target.
