Whitburn salvage a point at Arniston

Whitburn came from 2 down at Arniston today to draw the game and claim a valuable point which may later prove to be vital. Whitburn started the game quite well and were knocking the ball about better than their hosts for the first quarter of the game though neither team was able to create much in the final third. That was until the 28th minute when David Jeffrey headed in Liam McIntosh's cross when both were left unaccountably free in the box. After this Arniston, given confidence by the goal, dominated the game and went two up when Andrew Watson curled the ball in from an acute angle. Whitburn were given a lifeline just before the halftime whistle when the keeper decided to play football with a pass back and was robbed by Gary Brass out wide on the right. Brass then drove along the bye line and, with defenders converging on him, fired the ball into the unguarded net from a tight angle - Whitburn's only attempt on target! The second half was as free from good attacking play as had the first but as it wore on it seemed as though Whitburn might be the more likely to score although too many of their players seemed to need the extra touch or to beat the extra man which gave their opponents chances to block or dispossess them. Eventually, with 11 minutes to go Martin Russell headed home the equaliser after a Connor McQueenie throw in had been knocked on at the near post - the second attempt on goal. The remaining minutes produced no further goals and Whitburn were quite relieved to have a point at the final whistle. Not a great performance but the players deserve great credit for digging in and avoiding what might have been a disastrous defeat against the bottom team. There will be no extended match report as most of the action has been described above.
