Broxburn started brightly and on two minutes a ball into Alexander Miller would not fall to his feet in time and the defence cleared Two minutes later Nicholas Locke saw a shot beat away and when it was put back in there was an offside . On nine minutes a good ball into the visitors box found Mark Smith but trying to lob the keeper he lifted it over the bar . Scott Smith made a good run before trying an effort after cutting in from the right sending his shot just past the left hand post . Two minutes later at the other end a corner into the box broke out to Locke who crossed it back in and Miller headed over the bar . Scott Smith saw an other effort go past the post from 20 yards on  19 minutes Gary Fergus forced a good save out of Connor Wallace before Fergus saw his shot from the loose ball deflected for a corner . The opening goal came on 27 minutes  when Fergus got the better of Townsley before Wallace saved but the ball broke to CONNOR McLEAN who made no mistake to put his side in front . The lead was short lived as two minutes later Cameron Ross cut down the left hand side before crossing into the box where CONOR KELLY diverted the ball into the bottom right hand corner . Ten minutes left of the half saw McLaren try his luck from 40 yards out but his effort went over the bar . The same player five minutes later got into the box before firing his shot wide left . On the stroke of half time Miller had the ball in the net but there was a hand ball prior to the goal . and the goal was disallowed .

The second half saw Miller fire an effort wide from 20 yards out . There was a melee  on 53m when Simpson was lucky to only receive a yellow for . Ten minutes later the lucky PAUL SIMPSON shot from 20 yards out and some how the ball squirmed under the usually reliable Connor Wallace . Simpson was lucky not to receive a second yellow when he deliberately handled the ball stopping it running through to Nicholas Locke but the referee did not want to know and a minute later He was substituted before his luck ran out . Connor Kelly lobbed over the bar with sixteen minutes left . The hosts sealed the tie on 81 minutes when a ball into the box was half cleared it fell to SCOTT SMITH who fired home .Rhys Davies saw a good run and shot deflected over the bar with four minutes remaining . In the last minute Jeanfield got their fourth when a ball across the box found KEITH DEWAR unmarked 8 yards out and he made no mistake with the opportunity .  A bad day at the office but no time to dwell on our defeat as we prepare for the next cup tie at home to Tynecastle next Saturday
