Whitburn disappoint against Tayport

Whitburn's visit to Tayport ended in disappointment as they went down 3-1 to the home team. Tayport opened the scoring in the 32nd minute when Dale Reid got the first of his two when he ran in on goal from what looked to be at least 5 yards off side and took full advantage as he slammed the ball beyond Dougie Horne. With the game 60 minutes old Liam Ross made it two when Whitburn couldn't get the ball cleared from a corner. With 15 minutes to go James Martin was fouled in the box and Martin Russell converted the penalty (below) to give Whitburn a lifeline. Sadly it would only last 4 minutes as Reid got his second when the Whitburn defence misjudged a long ball which fell to him and he rounded Horne before slotting the ball into the net. With only 4 points from 5 games Whitburn now lie in the bottom third of the table which is disappointing given their start to the campaign. Hopefully they can turn things around next Saturday when they entertain Arniston. Match report.
