Whitburn beaten by the odd goal in three by Arniston

Whitburn conceded two quick goals against Arniston today in the 17th and 19th minute which dented their prospects of securing a second win. They never seemed to come to terms with the pace and control of Lumbert Kataleza who set up both goals and was a constant threat to the home defence who today reverted to a back four. The first goal came from a misplaced pass out of defence which landed at Kataleza's feet who drove towards the goal and spotted Michael Deland in a good position who duly blasted the ball beyond Dougie Horne. The second followed 2 minutes later and again Kataleza passed this time from a wide position to Darren Mcternan and he made no mistake with a shot inside the post. Gary Brass and Callum Robertson then tested the keeper but he made 2 decent saves before another slack pass was intercepted and Kyle Houldcroft Doig forced a great save from Horne just before the half - below. The second half was a bit of a non event as although Whitburn started strongly, they seemed to lack conviction up front and Arniston were able to repel their attacks with ease. In addition Arniston always looked dangerous when Kataleza got the ball. The consolation came in added time from a corner that wasn't cleared, the ball eventually falling to Martin Russell who netted with a good shot into the far corner. There will be no report this week as I am going out for the evening and there wasn't really much to report beyond the above.

In other news, Whitburn were drawn away to Camelon in the first round of the Scottish Cup.
