Whitburn mount comeback to beat Armadale

Whitburn bounced back from their dismal defeat at Harthill with a solid 3-1 win at Armadale. The first half was seriously lacking in goal mouth incidents as befits a local derby and the home side scored with their first (and only) effort on target when Robert Sloan headed a corner from the left side powerfully in at the back post on the half hour. Five minutes later Darren Liddell was in on the keeper but his shot was straight into his midriff. The second half saw Whitburn press their opponents better, though, for the first 25 minutes they were unable to add to their shots on target tally. That changed in the 72nd minute when a deep Reece Boyle free kick was headed on in the box and fell to Liddell who controlled well and blasted the ball beyond Armadale's trialist keeper. A bit like Wednesday the goal fired up Whitburn and they then dominated most of the remainder of the game. Two minutes later Andrew Mochan and Iain Griffin combined well on the right wing and an Armadale defender headed over. Just after the corner Boyle chased down a clearance from it and put in a low cross which found Dewi Taylor at the near post and he fired the ball into the net to give the Burnie the lead. With ten to go a deep free kick from Sloan landed at the feet of Gary Maclachlan at the back post and he fired in a goalbound shot but Grant Hamilton cleared it off the line. Almost on the final whistle Taylor scored his second when he timed his run brilliantly to run onto a Liddell header from a long clearance when he calmly slotted the ball into the back of the net.
