The home side started the best within two minutes they should have taken the lead when Keith Dewar got down the left and cut into the box his shot was saved it broke to Robbie Hollden who shot wide of the left hand post from six yards out . Holden had a chance to be provider a minute later but his ball into the box was cleared by the Broxburn defence .At the other end Nick Locke got down the right and his cross into the box was met by Alexander Miller but he could not get enough power on it to trouble the keeper .Two minutes later Alexander Miller was through with the keeper to beat but found Mark Mitchell at full stretch to turn the ball past his left hand post for a corner . There was action at the other end when Holden had a shot that Shaun Donoghue dealt with comfortably . Locke provided Miller with another chance on 11 minutes but the keeper thwarted the chance yet again . On quarter of an hour a ball into the box was coming to Grant Gavin but the defender had a fresh air shot at it and Holden who was standing between him and Donoghue couldn’t react quickly enough on the mistake and Donoghue gathered the ball .The home defence thwarted a Nick Locke effort on 17 minutes . Approaching half way through the first half chances went a begging for the visitors . Nick Locke laid the ball back to Kieron Anderson who fired a ball to the back of the box where Darren Gribben shot wide of the right hand post . Miller and Gribben set up a chance on 26 minutes but the ball would not fall kindly to either and the chance was gone . On the half hour mark Holden had a shot well saved by Donoghue . .With five minutes of the half remaining a ball into the box was turned behind for a Broxburn corner which came to nothing .
The second half started with the visitors on the attack when Miller shot wide left after 47 minutes . At the other end a minute later Keith Dewar saw a shot go just over the bar .Scott Richards was through on goals but the keeper saved his attempt . Substitute Christopher Anton had a chance just inside the box but Shaun Donoghue saved well . On 70 minutes Gribben set up Locke and Mitchell had to look lively to save from the captain . Gary Fergus was allowed to run through the midfield on 72 minutes and his shot from just outside the box was tipped over the bar by Donoghue .A minute later at the other end Anderson got down the left cut inside played the ball back to Richards who saw the defender nip in and put the ball out for a corner just as he was about to pull the trigger . Anderson again got down the left and Millers header was stopped and cleared off the line . This sent the home side straight up the other end and Daniel Kelly saw his shot go wide right . With six minutes remaining Mitchell pulled of a great save from Richards . A minute later Zander Miller turned in the box and his shot was saved . Jeanfield almost got all three points with two minutes remaining when a ball into the box saw Gary Fergus head unchallenged from six yards out over the bar ,a let off for the visitors . The last chance of the game fell to Nick Locke who shot just over in the last minute . As good an entertaining 0-0 draw as you will see but both clubs will have claims for all three points .
