IRVINE Meadow conceded an equaliser in the last kick of last night's (December 7) match, as they drew 3-3 away to Petershill.

Though Jordan Scott's injury time penalty wasn't quite the big talking point from the match for fans on social media.

Instead, it was Petershill striker, and Heart of Midlothian cult hero Christian Nade who caused a bit of a storm.

The former Jambo was sent off in the match - though that in itself was not the key talking point.

It was the fact that the French attacker was given his marching orders after receiving two bookings for dissent - only THREE minutes into the match.

Hundreds of football fans engaged with the Twitter updates provided by both clubs regarding the sending off only minutes into the game.

A common theme was that it was "obviously too cauld and he wanted up the road" while another added it was "clever" to avoid playing in last night's sub-zero temperatures.

While BBC Scotland's Scottish football chat-show 'A View from the Terrace' even weighed in on the subject - asking fans what the earliest red card they can remember is.

Nade has become a familiar face in the former junior football leagues in recent years having had four spells in Ayrshire since departing from the senior ranks of Scottish football.

He had two spells at Troon FC, a short stint at Annbank Juniors and he also spent to fruitful period at Muirkirk Juniors - where he once scored a winning goal in the Scottish Cup which he described as a better feeling than scoring against Arsenal for Sheffield United!

Though, interestingly, also during his time at Muirkirk, he saw red in a very similar fashion to yesterday.

The striker came on as a substitute in a 3-0 home defeat against Lesmahagow. Only three minutes into this appearance he saw red following an altercation with opposition defender Neil Schoneville.

Looking back on last night's game, it was a disappointing evening for George Grierson's Medda side.

They did make use of the man advantage early in the match when Jamie Martin gave them the lead on 15 minutes.

Though Del Hepburn would level for the Peasy before Medda man Paul Byrne was sent off for a dangerous challenge, as the sides headed in at half time with the scoreline, and number of players on the park, level.

Petershill took the lead early in the second half before goals in 81 and 85 minutes from Rhys Wallace and Wullie Lyle gave Medda a lead heading into the closing stages.

But when Petershill were awarded a penalty kick, Jordan Scott made no mistake with the games last kick, to ensure the points were shared in Springburn.
