Half way through the half Darren Smith put a cross come shot into the box and Wallace had to look lively as he tipped the ball over the bar . With half an hour gone Ian Gray got down the right and his cross into the box found the head of Tommy Coyne but his effort was easily save as he failed to get any power on the header .

Linlithgow doubled their lead when OWEN RONALD was allowed to create room inside the box before crashing a shot from the left hand side in of the right hand post .Nimmo and Miller linked up well to provide the later with a chance that Kyle Marley saved well as it broke to Cameron Ross he was adjudged to have been offside .With an hour on the clock Locke passed back to Craig Scott who’s shot went just over the bar from 25 yards out .
