After a couple of poor results, an a shocking performance last time out, Coeur hosted bottom side Liobians, who had failed to secure a single point so far this season. Again Couer struggled for numbers and Dave Sutton was joined on the bench by Si.

Coeur were the better side in the opening exchanges, though Liobians showed plnty of endevaour when in possesion of the ball.

It was Coeur who took the lead though when Martin Wilson burst into the box, only to be felled by a clumsy tackle. Degsi took it upon himself to sprint 40 yards to grab the ball first and spotted it up for the penalty. He struck it low to the keepers left and despite a touch from the cat, it nestled in the bottom corner.

Liobians rallied well and scored an equaliser after a defensive mix up. Within minutes though Rob Hatton had put Coeur back in front after good work from Chrissy Whelan, allowed him to fire home from inside the six yard box.

The second half saw Liobians playing the better football, while Coeur were wasteful in possesion. Liobians grabbed a deserved equaliser when again a lack of concentration let them in.

With 10 minutes to go Chrissy Whelan fired an unstoppable left footedd rive into the top right hand corner of the net. Liobians were shattered as their hard work went unrewarded.

Another poor performance from Coeur, but a piece of magic from Chrissy gave them all three points, despite the performance not really warranting them.
