Broxburns first effort came after 3 minutes with good passing play finished when Craig Scott fired over the bar . A minute later a ball to the back post was cut back to Alexander Miller who’s shot was blocked and cleared . At the other end good play between Donaldson and McCaughie finished with the later shooting over from 20 yards out . David McCaughie shot wide right from the edge of the box on nine minutes . Quarter of an hour in and Ross Crawford had a shot that was easily saved by Connor Wallace . A minute later the same player shot wide left from the right hand side of the box . Miller had a good run into the box on 18 minutes but his shot went wide left of the target . Broxburn lived dangerously on 24 minutes when a corner into the box was eventually scrambled clear . Sauchie had a good chance on half hour mark when a free kick into the box saw Jordan Wright glance a header just wide left of the post . Cameron Ross four minutes later saw a great shot tipped over the bar by Darren Dolan in the visitors goals . Steven Dolan had a chance in the last ten minutes of the half when a good ball into the box was sent wide right of the target .
From the kick off Nicholas Locke was sent through but his effort went over the bar . A corner in to the Sauchie box on 56 minutes saw a John Grant header tipped over the bar . A hour gone and a ball ricochet in the box before Craig Donaldson fired well over the bar . Half way through the second half Nicholas Locke and Alexander Miller created an opening that was saved really well by Dolan . Ten minutes remaining and with the scoreline coming in from other games it was important to get a winner . Cameron Ross shot just wide left of target . Four minutes later an effort from Locke was saved as Dolan kept his side in the game turning the ball behind for a corner at full stretch . The corner in was knocked out but only as far as JOHN GRANT on the left hand side of the box and he steered the ball into the far top right hand corner to the delight of his team mates . Scott Richards and Greg Binnie attempted to increase their sides lead but to no avail . A hard three points from an improving side so happy with the reward . .
