Jeanfield Swifts were up for the game from the start and pressurised the visiting defence in the early exchanges .On 11 minutes Liam Baker was put through on goals but rushed his shot and fired over from 18 yards out . Five minutes later Scott Richards and Ross Nimmo both had a chance to score but between them they forced the ball wide of target .Eighteen minutes on the clock and Baker was proving a handful and was unlucky to see an effort blocked by Paterson and cleared from the danger area .Kieron Anderson forced a save from Mark Mitchell in the hosts goals . Swifts thought they had taken the lead when a free kick into the box from wide right into the box was met by Liam Baker who headed home but his celebrations were cut short as the assistant had his flag up for offside .His disappointment was short lived as Jeanfield took the lead two minutes later a ball fired into the box from the left was cut out by the fully stretched Paterson and LIAM BAKER was first to react to the loose ball and turned and fired home from an angle .Ross Nimmo had a shot saved a minute later but it was Jeanfield who piled on the misery on twenty eight minutes when Craig Scott tried to clear the ball it fell to LIAM BAKER twenty yards out he took a few strides past the last defender before scoring in the bottom right hand corner .It was not looking good for the visitors at this stage . Darren Cole could have done better with a header near the end of the first half from a corner kick .
Jeanfield started the second as they had started the first with all the pressure but to no avail . Broxburn almost got one back when great play from Ross Nimmo saw his attempt turned behind for a corner by the keeper . from the corner Alexander Miller headed just over the bar .Broxburn did get one back two minutes later on the hour mark when a free kick 25 yards out and wide of the eighteen yard box was floated into the box by Kieron Anderson and his perfect ball was met by NICHOLAS LOCKE who sent a glancing header high into the far corner .Broxburn had their tails up now and two minutes later Anderson sent a ball into the box but was just too strong for Miller running in. The game was all square on 70 minutes a ball played into the box was cleared Kieron Anderson stopped the ball going out for a bye kick and turned and crossed into the box for ALEXANDER MILLER to head home from four yards out .Six minutes later Nimmo set up Anderson who saw his effort saved . Jeanfield almost regained the advantage when a slick move saw Keith Dewar shoot just wide of the right hand post .With ten minutes left Darren Gribben sent a free kick just over the bar .Broxburn did take the lead with six minutes left .ALEXANDER MILLER chased a ball to the bye line and cut the ball back across the six yard box and found Kieron Anderson at the back of the box who crossed back across the box and the big striker was on his knees when he headed into the empty net. Jeanfield were not to be denied a share of the points as the game went into injury time a corner played into the box was bundled over the line by KEITH DEWAR . Deep in injury time Scott Mollison made a run down the left into th box and crossed across the goals with the ball coming of the cross bar. Darren Gribben had one last chance to take all three points but shot just wide of the target .A share of the points about right but need to improve next week performance wise if we are to continue in the Conservatory Convertors Fife and Lothian’s cup when we play Newtongrange Star at home with a 2-30pm kick off .
