The first opportunity fell to the visitors when Nicholas Locke got down the right hand side and sent the ball in to Alexander Miller who fired over the bar on 4 minutes . Four minutes later a corner in from the left saw Dylan Weldon get a free header but saw it go over the bar . Miller forced a great save from Jack Findlay in the host’s goal . Broxburn broke the deadlock on 13 minutes when Nicholas Locke sent ALEXANDER MILLER through on goal and when he rounded the keeper he swept the ball into the unguarded goal . Half way through the half Preston sent a free kick into the box and it was cleared to the back right of the box where Steven Campbell was unmarked and he floated the ball back into the mix where it fell to Weldon who fired over the bar from just inside the box . Conor Kelly saw a good attempt deflected for a corner on 25 minutes .Preston got back on level terms in 27 minutes when SCOTT WALKER made room on the edge of the box before firing low into the bottom left hand corner . A minute later a ball back to Findlay in the host’s goal was spilled and when Miller went for the loose ball the keeper impeded him but the referee gave nothing more than a corner . Miller saw two attempts cleared off the line on the half hour mark . An attempted clearance at the other end by Andrew Gillen broke to Dylan Weldon who got down the left before firing across the box where Conor Wallace done well to turn the ball behind for a corner . Preston were reduced to ten men with six minutes of the half remaining when Miller was through on goal and Craig Innes came across him and brought him crashing to the ground for which he  saw a straight red card .  Two minutes later Miller sent a shot wide left of the post from the edge of the box on the right hand side .

The second half started slow and it was on 55 minutes when the first chance of the half was sent in from miller which the keeper spilled but Kelly was adjudged to have fouled the keeper going for the loose ball . On the hour mark Conor Kelly fired in a shot that Findlay managed to tip over the bar . From the corner the ball broke out to Ross Nimmo who fired in a shot that was blocked and cleared . Broxburn took the lead when a ball played into the box by Andrew Gillen broke back out to Chris Townsley just outside the right hand side of the 18 yard box he sent a ball into the box where GORDON DONALDSON got beyond the defence to guide the ball home past Findlay on 64 minutes  .Five minutes later the visitors took a strangle hold on the game when  a Beasley corner into the box eight yards out was met by the head of CHRISTOPHER TOWNSLEY who headed home . GREG BINNIE got on the end of a Jack Beasley ball into the back left post for him to turn the ball past Findlay to put his side in a comfortable position five minutes later . Jack Beasley almost made it five when a great shot from the right hand side came crashing off the left hand post with Findlay rooted to the spot . The final chance of the game came on 82 minutes when   Gordon Donaldson got down the left and fired a ball across the box that was just too strong for the in coming Daniel Duncan ..This sent us back to the top on goal difference with two league games to come this week which could give us the chance to consolidate our position at the top of the league
