Broxburn looked in the mood from the start and after two minutes it was Locke who made a good run down the left but his ball into the box was behind his attacking team mates . On five minutes Daryl Devlin saw an effort saved by Wallace . Locke again put a good ball in on 12 minutes from the right and the defence cleared just before Nico Gibson was about to head home . Craig Scott should have done better on 20 minutes when Locke set him up with a cut back but the midfielder’s shot was weak at the keeper . A minute later Whitehill attacked down the left and a cross into the box came of the bar before  Grant Gavin turned it behind for a corner . The corner swung in from the left into the middle of the box and GARY HAMILTON fired home from eight yards . Ross made a good run and shot on 24 minutes which was deflected for a corner . A minute later Locke put the ball out left to Gibson  but his shot went wide left . Broxburn were pressing for the equaliser and Locke again cut the ball across for Ross but his shot went wide left . Just after the half hour mark A corner in was met by the head of Grant Gavin but he was disappointed to see it go over the bar .Controversy on 37 minutes when the home defence were all over the place and good play by the visitors saw a cross ball cut out by Youssef Bejaoui with his hands but both officials failed to see the offence outside the box .

Nick Locke forced a good save in the first minute of the half . The visitors got on level terms a minute later  when NICHOLAS LOCKE went on a run down the left before shooting under the advancing keeper . Ross couldn’t capitalised on a good ball in from Locke on 55 minutes . Scott Richards put Conor Kelly through on 63 minutes but the strikers effort went over the bar . Whitehill spurned a chance on 65 minutes when Sommerville put a good ball on to the head of Scott Wright but the header went wide of the target . Greg Binnie saw a good ball in cleared from the danger area on 74 minutes with Whithill seeing a Ross Connell effort deflected for a corner at the other end two minutes later . Craig Scott saw a 30 yard free kick rocket of the post with a minute remaining .Broxburn almost shipped all three points when Grant Gavin was short with a pass back to Wallace but the big keeper managed to get there and steal the ball off Anthony Muir as he was about to strike .

A disappointing point with the chances created but could have gone the other way also so we move on .
