After last week’s exploits it was back to league duty and Whitehill were the first to have a crack at goal but Scott Wright fired wildly over the bar after two minutes . Broxburn carved open the visiting defence before a Conor Kelly shot was deflected for a corner .which came to nothing .The game was needing a spark to bring it to life but nothing was happening in the danger area for either side . Twenty minutes in and a throw in on the left saw Gordon Donaldson receive the ball but his effort went over the bar . Half way through the half Ross Nimmo put a teasing ball across the box but there were no takers . Broxburn created a couple of half chances but the visiting defence eventually cleared the danger . The best chance of the game so far cam on 29 minutes when Ross Nimmo put a great ball in from the right which Alexander Miller headed just over the bar . Greg Binnie made a good run into the left hand side of the box before firing just past the right hand post . The goal came in bizarre fashion  on 36 minutes. When Conor Kelly floated a ball into the box it was too near the keeper on the goal line but inexplicitly Youssef Bejaoui  , the big Whitehill Welfare keeper dropped an easy catch and ALEXANDER MILLER was there to prod the ball home from four yards . The only other chance of the half fell to Kelly on 40 minutes after good play but the striker’s effort went over the target .

Whitehill came out the second half in determined mood and early on forced a corner that came to nothing when played into the box . With 50 minutes on the clock Broxburn had a great chance to give themselves a cushion when Nicholas Locke made his way into the box from the right he was bundled to the ground .Alexander Miller who made no mistake from the spot last week stepped up but this time Youssef Bejaoui  made a great save diving to his left to turn the ball over the bar to keep his side in the game . Ryan McCallum should have done better when forcing his way into the box but his effort went wide . Not for the first time in the game on 57 minutes Ross Nimmo put a great ball across the box but found no taker’s . Half way through the half a good ball to Miller from Binnie out on the left and the striker tried to bend the ball from the left into the right hand side of the goal but could not bend the ball enough and it went wide right . Good play by Cameron Ross down the left saw him send a ball across the face of goal it was cleared out to Nicholas Locke who saw his shot from 22 yards out shave the cross bar on the way over . Whitehill created a good opportunity on 73 minutes when Scott Wright fired a shot from the right hand side of the box past the left hand post . Two minutes later a long ball out of defence for the visitors sent Ryan McCallum beyond the home back line ,but the ball was just a bit too hard and Conor Wallace who had come out to the edge of his box gathered the ball just in time . John Grant set Locke up with five minutes remaining but his captain shot over the bar . Ross Nimmo shot over the bar in the last minute while of balance . Three points in the bag against a good side fortunate or not we take them and move on to Dunbar on Tuesday with a 7-30pm kick off
