Tynecastle vs Broxburn Athletic  

We returned to action for the first time since Mid-December, with a short trip to the Capital for a league match against Tynecastle at Meggatland.   

Tynecastle lie in 10th place in the EOSFL Premier League. Winning 6 games, drawing 2 and losing 8 so far this season. Like Broxburn, Tynecastle haven’t played since Mid-December. In their last match they drew with Musselburgh 2-2 at Olivebank on the 16th of December.  

Broxburn make two changes from the team that drew with Haddington Athletic 0-0 on December the 16th. New Signing Steven Anderson made his debut at centre back replacing Kieran Moyles and Connor Thomson replaces Marky Munro.   

Tynecastle are in Maroon shirts and shorts with white socks and start with a 4-4-2 formation.   

Broxburn Athletic are in their changed kits, Gold and Black shirts, black shorts and gold and black socks and start with a 4-4-2 diamond shape.   

Tynecastle were the first to threaten in the 1st minute. Greg Page looks to be fouled in the build-up, but referee Falconer waves play on. Cairns picks up the loose ball and fires his shot wide of the left-hand post.   

On the 4th minute, Broxburn have their first chance. Errol Douglas picks up. He finds Nick Locke who crosses looking for Gary Brass but puts too much on the ball.   

On the 11th minute, Lewis Turner’s corner is cleared by Tynecastle, it comes out too Greg Page whose shot is wide of target from distance.   

Huge chance for the hosts on 14 minutes. Chesser finds Cameron wide right. The Tynecastle number 9 squares it to Scott who has a tap in, but he can’t connect.   

Nick Locke is first in the referee’s book after a foul on Tynecastle’s number 7 Wynne on 15 minutes.  

Tynecastle are in again. Cameron crosses from the right. He finds Cairns who can’t connect. The ball is only cleared as far as the edge of the box where Callum Bremner fouled O’Donnell and referee Falconer had no hesitation in pointing to the spot. GOAL! Cameron steps up and slots it into the right corner.
