Game versus Thornton is OFF

Whitburn come from behind to win a point against Bathgate

Whitburn and Bathgate served up an entertaining new year game in the light rain at Central Park today, eventually sharing 4 goals. With a number of players missing through suspension or injury, the line up seemed a little threadbare, as evidenced by manager Jason Bolam being named as a sub. Despite this Whitburn passed the ball better and had better chances in the first half but went in at the break one down thanks to a great strike Stephen Easton into the top corner from the edge of the box in the 37th minute. Prior to this good interplay between Dewi Taylor and Darren Liddell saw the latter hit a good shot which was well saved by Jakub Welna and, after a blocked Liddell shot, an even better save denied Matthew Cooper's deflected shot. Whitburn started brightly in the second half and within 2 minutes had a dangerous cross come in from each flank but there were no takers in the middle. Against the run of play it was the visitors who scored next as ex Whitburn player Bryan King headed in a pinpoint Easton corner at the near post. The game then descended into a more dour midfield battle with Whitburn looking destined to drop another three points, but came to life with 12 minutes to go when a fine Andy Mochan right wing was side footed past Welna by Andy Thomson to give Whitburn a little hope. Six minutes later that hope was converted into a salvaged point when Mochan added to his two goals last week and fired in off the post after he had driven into the box. He might have won the game minutes later if he had gone through on his own instead of passing to Thomson who had run offside. Instead Bathgate started to push for a winner and a fine diving fingertip save by Dougie Horne from a diagonal Darren Dalrymple shot kept the scores level. In the end a draw was probably the correct result and Whitburn deserve immense credit for coming back into the game with so little time left. As a postscript Jason came on for an injured Taylor in the 65th minute and contributed well to the recovery.
