Another cold afternoon as games being abandoned around the region because of snow , no adverse weather at the Albyn . Paul Simpson was the first to try for goal after only 2 minutes but his shot went wide of the target . A minute late Ross Allum at the other end tried an ambitious shot from 30 yards that went wide left of the visitors goals . Gary Fergus should have done better on 6 minutes when through one on one with Connor Wallace but the keeper came out on top with a good save . The visitors took the lead a minute later when a ball played across the six yard box from the right found DAYLE ROBERTSON unmarked at the back post with the easiest of tasks to turn the ball into the net . It was to get worse on 15  minutes when Daniel Nimmo fouled the forward in the box and gave away a penalty . DAYLE ROBERTSON stepped up and fired home from the spot . Good pressure on 18 minutes from the home side ended when Player Manager Chris Townsley lobbed the ball goal ward but the keeper managed to clutch it at full stretch . Craig Newal made Dalton work in the visitors goal with his cross dipping under the bar he tipped it over for a corner . Four minutes later on 36 minutes the visitors increased their lead when when Christopher Scott put a ball over from the left and the home defence did not pick up CHRISTOPHER DODD who turned the ball home unchallenged . They almost made it four two minutes later when Christopher Scott fired in a free kick that Wallace saved before being turned behind for a corner .

Three minutes into the second half it could have been four but the Jeanfield forward was crowded out and the danger was cleared .  Broxburn got back in the game on 51 minutes when great play out of defence was followed by a long through ball that GREG BINNIE out muscled the defender before  slotting the ball home . The same player should have done better six minutes later when a great ball across the box land at Binnie 6 yards out and with everyone expecting the net to bulge he some how scooped it over the bar .Just after the hour mark Gary Fergus had a golden opportunity to score but he headed , over under no pressure . Broxburn were pressing hard and were rewarded with sustained pressure when a ball into the six yard box produced a scramble before DANIEL NIMMO up for a corner was there to prod the ball over the line .  A good ball in from the left found Fergus who’s shot was well saved by Wallace before his defence cleared the ball up the park .  Ross Allum almost equalised but his shot was well saved by Dalton before the defence cleared the ball away from the danger area . Broxburn pressed for the equaliser but to no avail and Jeanfield went back to Perth with the three points .
