Whitburn lose local derby in League Cup

After a bye week Whitburn were back in action today in their first league cup tie against Armadale. A number of half chances were created at both ends of the pitch in the first half but neither team could seriously threaten the goal, attempts going off target or resulting in straight forward saves. The deadlock was broken by the visitors on the hour when 10 wide on the left set up 8 who struck a powerful low shot into the bottom corner beyond a diving Daniel Russell. The lead was doubled 12 minutes later when 10 beat his man inside and fired another daisy cutter into the same corner. Whitburn had a few efforts easily saved and scored a consolation goal 2 minute into injury time through a Gary Brass shot. League business continues next week with a home game against Carnoustie followed by a visit from Kennoway. Match report.
