Whitburn through in Scottish by the odd goal in 7
Whitburn were severely challenged by North
Division Arbroath Vics today in the second round of the Scottish Cup
but eventually ran out 4-3 winners on a difficult surface. The
Angus side were clearly well motivated for the game as they attacked
Whitburn with pace and precision and took the lead on the quarter hour
when Rikki Gillesepie netted a right
wing cross. Just 6 minutes later they were 2 up thanks to Charlie
Wilson whilst Whitburn had scarcely had a shot on goal - shades of last
round's heroics against Camelon - could they do it again? As the half
wore on Whitburn did come more into the game and eventually with 5
minutes to go in the half a Gary Brass shot halved the lead. Then,
again like the Camelon game, Whitburn scored early in the second half,
again through Brass with a great header this time. Callum Robertson
(who had come on in the first half for injured Dewi Taylor) then hit
Arbroath with a brace with 16 and 14 minutes to go, the first a point
blank header and the second a near post shot. That, however, was not
the end of the scoring as the home side rallied with a goal in the 83rd
minute from left back Corey McCulloch, leading to nervy end to the game
but Whitburn held out well to claim their place in the third round. Match report.
