Match Report

Liam Boyce scored one and created another as Ross County fought back to defeat Kilmarnock and end the season in ninth place in the Premiership.
The home side took a first-half lead when Greg Kiltie pounced on Martin Woods' mistake.
But after the break Boyce met Marcus Fraser's cross at the near post and looped a finish into the far corner.
And the Northern Irishman turned provider by finding a pass for Rocco Quinn to roll past Conor Brennan.
Outgoing skipper - Richie Brittain - was emotional as he left the Rugby Park pitch after seven years with the staggies.
Locke opted to start Kiltie, goalkeeper Brennan and Aaron Splaine - an 18-year-old who operated in the centre of midfield like a seasoned professional despite only making his senior debut.
Splaine displayed nifty touches to ghost away from markers, as well as a surging desire to push forward and test former Killie stopper Antonio Reguero with some fierce drives.
Kiltie's strike made Woods pay for a sloppy pass on the edge of his own box, and the guilty County midfielder barely had time to put his hands on his head in dismay before Josh Magennis had squared the ball for Kiltie to finish.
A few minutes earlier Woods could have been the hero; the former Doncaster man's speculative strike from distance pushed onto the upright by Northern Irishman Brennan.
Ross County's Boyce was already in double figures for the campaign and the forward nearly increased his tally from a curling free-kick which Brennan had to be smart to tip wide.
He would not need to wait much longer for his goal, somehow looping Fraser's cross in at the far corner to take the wind out of a young Killie side's sails.
The hosts, with an average age of 22 in their starting line-up, conceded again when Boyce played in Quinn to finish low past Brennan for his first goal of the season.
And that ensured a winning end to the season for the Highlanders.
