We took a break from league action yesterday and travelled down the bypass to lowland league side Tranent in the South Challenge Cup 5th Round.

The progress Tranent have made since being promoted as EOSFL Champions in season 21/22 has been excellent. They finished 5th in their maiden season, and they currently lie in 5th place in the Lowland League. In their last fixture, they drew at with Caledonian Braves 1-1 at home last weekend.

Broxburn make 3 changes from last weeks 2-1 victory over Sauchie. Stevie Anderson, Euan McGill and Ross Nimmo are replaced by Ben Davidson, Andrew Gillen and Connor Thomson.

Tranent are in all blue and start with a 4-3-3 formation.
