Jerviston faced AC Rovers in this League Cup semi-final, played at King George V Park in Wishaw.
Both teams were desperate for a fast start as this was a great opportunity to reach a cup final so early in the season, however the initial stages consisted of both trying to adapt to the pitch and conditions, with a few slipping and sliding on the surface.
Jerviston started off the better and could have had several chances at goal had it not been for a great interception by the AC Rovers defence and a close offside call.
Jack Cairns had the first good chance of the match for AC, when the ball sat up invitingly for him but his volley went just wide with Dominic Leary helpless.
This chance sparked AC Rovers into life and they began to pass the ball about well, with their captain Connor Moir in particular impressing with his dribbling and passing ability.
Tony Mullen had the best chance of the first half for Jerviston and it was a brilliant opportunity to take the lead, but a great last ditch tackle from Isaac McCulloch saved his team.
Both sides continued to struggle to create clear cut chances in what was proving to be a tight semi-final match.
