Our final build up game to the new season against Bathgate Thistle at home and the players turned in a much better performance than the one served up in mid week .Also Calum Rarity and Craig Young got good game time after there holiday and Michael Linton came on for some game time after being on the treatment table for the duration of pre season .(Bud Porteous has been working wonders with the injured players and we thank him for his time and effort and advice to the player’s ).Broxburn opened the scoring after ten minutes when some neat passing football on the right edge of the visitors box set up Alexander Miller who turned and saw his shot find the back of the net .The second came from Ross Donnelly who ran on to a through ball lobbed over the defence by Kieron Anderson and Ross made no mistake from 12 yards out after thirty one minutes . Scott McNaughton got the third on the hour mark when Kieron Anderson made a good run down the left and fired a cross across the penalty area and Scott fired home from 8 yards . Only disappointment in a game played in a good spirit was the sending off of the visitors Hassan Nyang for stamping with ten minutes to go . A very good display of football again and signs are good for the forthcoming season if the players continue with this kind of form .
