Broxburn started well and Kieron Anderson created a chance in two minutes weaving in and out defenders before firing a shot that Keeper Michael Watson turned round his near hand post .Both teams were cancelling out each other in a competitive but chances were few and far between .Bathgate had a chance through Hassan Nyang but Wallcae blocked his effort and the ball was cleared .Just after the half hour mark Wallace was at his best when spreading himself to save from Dalrymple .Just before half time Robin Feeney got to the bye line and tried his luck from an angle but Wallace gathered the ball comfortably .
The second half and Bathgate were the first to threaten when David Taylor saw his header come back off the post straight into Wallace’s arms . Broxburn stepped up the game and on 56 minutes Nimmo got down the right and set up Anderson but his shot was well saved .Nicholas Locke saw an effort go just wide of the left hand post .On the hour mark Richards got to the bye line and crossed into the box to the waiting McNaughton but the defender just got there in time to head clear .The goal came 2 minutes later when Kieron Anderson passed an inch perfect pass into the box for the running ROSS NIMMO who made no mistake from twelve yards .Broxburn should have went two up when a ball into the box from Anderson was knocked back across the box by McNaughton at the back who found Richards who headed down to the in the clear Locke who saw his shot saved from six yards .Locke made a great run on seventy minutes and saw his shot from outside the box headed over the bar with the keeper beaten and the ball going goal wards .with Five minutes left Locke hit the bar with a header and the ball was cleared . A good tight affair with the hosts getting the counter to go through to a second round away tie at Kirkcald Y.M. at a date to be arranged
