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.
