Cup foes caught in spit for spat row.
A spitting storm took the shine off Hurlford's 2-1 Scottish Cup win in a Christmas cracker.
Musselburgh claim Lewis Morrison spat on Ally Adams moments before the keeper saw red for a two-footed lunge on the forward.
Picture evidence then shows Adams spitting at the debut kid as he walks off the park.
On the goalie's tackle, Burgh boss Calvin Shand said: "Their player spat in his face two minutes earlier when he slid out for the ball. The first chance he got he reacted and it was a tackle after that. So that's the reason he got frustrated - because he was spat on."
On the photo, Shand added: "My goalie was wrong - he should have known better. But sometimes it's hard to say react better when I'm not the one who has been lying there getting my face spat on for no reason."
Ford boss Darren Henderson said he addressed the alleged initial incident with Morrison.
He said: "Lewis told me he didn't do it and I have to take his word for it. Spitting in the game is unacceptable."
But an eyewitness, who isn't involved with either club and was standing 10 yards away, told MailSport: "The keeper fell at the feet of Morrison when he picked the ball up, they said a couple of words then Morrison spat down at him."
