The game kicked off on a heavy pitch with any significant rain threatening to abandon the match should it come .

A good move by Broxburn on 23 minutes saw Miller send a cross into the box to Alexander Murray who laid it back to Scott Richards who shot over the bar . The same players were involved three minutes later this time Richard’s shot was blocked .

A minute later a ball in from the left broke to Macdonald who’s shot took a deflection for a corner .Scott Richards sent Miller through on goal but the keeper did well to narrow the angle and save the danger . On fifty seven minutes after a conflict of opinions between the assistant and the referee with the referee giving Broxburn the throw in and the lassistant raising his flag the opposite way Darrell Young and Kyle Allison were booked for voicing their opinion with Young having been booked previously he was ordered off .With 66 minutes gone Miller set up Anderson who saw his shot straight at the keeper easily saved .
