The visitors started the brighter and created the first opening in 2 minutes when Michael Kennedy got free in the box before cutting the ball to Scott Smith but Gordon Donaldson got over to tackle and clear the danger . Two minutes later Smith fired a shot from 20 yards which took a deflection which took the sting off the ball and Connor Wallace gathered comfortably . Broxburn created a great chance a minute late when Shaun Harrison cleared the ball up the park to Alexander Miller who laid it off to Nicholas Locke who was only stopped from scoring by Mark Mitchell in the visitors goal who came out quickly to throw himself at the captains feet to gather the ball . On eight minutes a free kick in from the left by Cameron Ross was headed out for a corner .When the corner came in Christopher Townsley saw his header go just over the bar . The opening goal came a minute later when a Harrison free kick from just inside the opposition half found Nick Locke who headed down into the path of ALEXANDER MILLER who turned the ball into the net . The lead only lasted five minutes when a corner played low into the box was picked up by Michael Kennedy who got to the bye line before lobbing a cross over from the right to the back post where RHYS DAVIES rose above everybody to head home from three yards out . Half way through the half the visitors created a good opportunity but the final ball into the box was not picked up by any one and the danger was cleared . Almost half an hour gone and Ross cut into the box but his shot was turned away for a corner . The corner came in and Miller sent a shot wide of target on the left hand side . A good ball a minute later to Locke was then passed to Ross who’s cross was cut out for a corner .The corner was swung into the box and Gordon Donaldson crashed a header off the cross bar and over with the keeper beaten . .The hosts took the lead on 33 minutes when CAMERON ROSS took a corner on the left hand side shooting towards Edinburgh end of the park and his corner deceived everyone to go in at the far right hand corner .Connor McLaren sent in a great ball on 41 minutes but none of his team mates were there to take the opportunity and the Broxburn defence cleared the danger .
Jeanfield came out the second half determined to get back on level terms and there was not a minute on the clock when Gary Fergus got the ball on the right hand side before cutting across the box with a pass that found RHYS DAVIES who scored his and his side’s second goal to level the game . On 55 minutes Conor McLaren got into the box but shot wildly over under pressure .Ross Nimmo fired a shot in from the right hand side that went wide left of the goals . An hour on the clock and a good free kick into the hosts box was not picked up by anybody and the danger was cleared .Half way through the half Gordon Donaldson sent a great ball across the six yard box from the left which Ross Nimmo could only turn wide of the right hand upright . With both teams going for the winner Scott Smith fired a shot just over the bar from just outside the box . Shaun Harrison showed great determination when thwarting a chance on the edge of the box before it was cleared from the danger area . Broxburn thought we had scored with seven minutes left as a Jack Beasley free kick was played into the box from the right hand side about thirty yards out found the head of Nicholas Locke running in to head home what everyone thought was a legitimate goal except the assistant . The winning goal was only delayed a few minutes when a long ball through found CAMERON ROSS in the box and his determination to score succeeded despite the best efforts of the defence . Miller had one more chance as the game went into injury time but his effort was over the bar . A good win over one of our rivals for the league is very satisfactory and we now have our destiny in our own hands and the players will know that rewards are just around the corner if they carry out a professional end to the season we will be there . We keep our feet on the ground and move on and every game will be treated like a cup final .
