Broxburn created the first chance on five minutes when Ross Nimmo got down the right and crossed into the box where Dean Shaw punched off the head of Conor Kelly to clear the danger . It was going to be a dour battle .Alexander Miller saw a shot blocked by the defence on 15 minutes . Ross Cameron tried a speculative shot from thirty five yards out that sailed well over the bar . Good play from the visitors half way through the half on the edge of the penalty box finished when Alan Docherty fired a shot that was easily saved by Wallace in the home goals . Nimmo was denied just after the half hour mark by good defending . On 34 minutes the closest chance came when Miller tried to flick it past Shaw but the keeper saved well . A few minutes later the striker saw a shot blocked and cleared from danger .  Camelon created a chance with six minutes remaining of the half but this time Docherty shot wildly over the bar . The last and closest effort came in the dying minutes off the half when a corner came into the box and Miller’s effort was cleared off the line and away from the area .

All watching the game were hoping for better fare in the second half and it was the home side who almost scored in the opening minutes when Nicholas Locke made room for a shot but his effort went over the bar . Connor Wallace saved at the feet of Ryan Kane on fifty minutes at the expense of a corner . two minutes later Docherty ran into the box from the left and Wallace blocked his effort at his near post .The corner came in and Donald Morrison headed wide of the right upright . A long ball over the defence for Miller was met on the edge of his box by Shaw . An hour gone and the quality was not getting any better when a ball in from the left was just too high for the attacking  Ross Cameron . The goal came after 64 minutes when ROSS CAMERON got the ball in the middle of the box and went slightly wide right before turning and rolling the ball past Wallace from an angle . Kieran Anderson saw an effort from 25 yards out wide left go just wide of the left post .The same player saw the sane result  on the 80 minute mark . Jack Beasley sent a good long ball into the box with six minutes remaining but there were not takers of the chance created . With four minutes left on the clock an opportunity to get on level terms when Miller knocked a ball forward to Locke who was then brought down in the box and the home side were rewarded a penalty . Conor Kelly stepped up and his tame shot was saved directly at him by Dean Shaw . It was not to be our day we know we can and must do better .With no game until a week on Tuesday against Preston Athletic in the Football Nations Cup ,it will give time for all the niggling knocks and players coming back from injury to fully recover .The Preston Athletic match is on Tuesday the 30th of October with a 7-30pm kick off  .
