A point for either team after a hard fought game.
Lanark had the better of the first half and would have been wondering how they never went in at least one goal to the good, had a chance cleared off the line and came extremely close on a few other occasions, but 0-0 it was at half time.
After around 70 minutes two subs were made, Brian coming on for Jarvie and Con Boyle on for Connor. Both players made an impact and indeed Con got Lanark's goal, a fine strike after a set piece, the ball broke to him around 20 yards from goal and he struck it on the volley past the despairing goalkeeper.
The lead was short lived however as Benburb levelled shortly after with a very similar strike of great quality, perhaps from slightly further out, the Lanark keeper nearly kept it out but could only palm the ball onto the post and in.
Both sides had opportunities and Lanark a good shout for a penalty, but it was to finish even.
