Broxburn Showed their intent to get back to winning ways as early as the first minute when a free kick into the box was headed over by Gary Brass . A ball in from a corner was played back across the six yard box but there were no takers for the home side . The opening goal came on 14 minutes when a ball out quickly from Donoghue to Harrison was played long GREG BINNIE shrugged of the attention of the defender and got in to the box to fire past Neil Mitchell in the visitors goal . Gary Brass tested the keeper on 18 minutes as he scrambled to gather the ball after stopping it . Craig Newall saw a shot saved for a corner by Mitchell . The corner in fell to GARY BRASS who made no mistake from inside the six yard box . Jordan Wright sent Greg Binnie into the box on the left hand side but this time Binnie shot wide right of the target .
The second half first opportunity fell to the visitors when Greig Spence saw his shot saved by Donoghue .A great ball to the back post on 55 minutes saw Binnie fire in a shot that was saved . Tait got on the end of a through ball but the defence closed him down and cleared the danger . Half way through the second half Greg Nicol saw an attempt on goal go over the bar .Ross Nimmo was sent through on goal but the defence held firm and blocked his attempt . The substitute did not have long to wait for his goal . With four minutes left he was in again clear of the defence and unleashed a shot that Neil Mitchell (and everybody else) in the goals thought he had but it slipped through his hands and landed in the back of the net to ROS NIMMO’s delight .The last minute saw the last chance when Ross Allum fired in a shot that Mitchell saved well .
A better performance producing a better result and hopefully we can kick on now . A satisfactory debut for Daniel Nimmo who had not even seen his team mates until before kick off as we bought him from Linlithgow Rose . We move on to Saturday and the third home game in a row this time to Lothianthistlehutchiesonvale in the league with a 2-30pm kick off .
