Whitburn drop another 2 points

Another good performance by Whitburn today which ended in a disappointing draw as they controlled much of the game and had more chances than Dalkeith. They took the lead early on when Andy Thomson got through on goal and fired an unstoppable shot beyond James Mcqueen. On the half hour James Redpath equalised with a free kick after what looked to be a soft award on the edge of the box. Thomson was seemingly fouled in the box early in the second half whilst driving towards the byeline but astonishingly the referee yellow carded him for a dive! Just two minutes after he gave Whitburn the lead again when he fired home from a tight angle on the left. Again Whitburn couldn't keep the lead and Bruce Mclean got free in the box with 12 minutes to go and fired his team level. With 10 minutes to go the red mist descended on Lewis Milton when he pushed an opponent to the ground and he saw red. Fortunately Dalkeith were unable to take advantage and it was Whitburn who twice almost regained the lead when a James Mcateer shot almost squirmed through Mcqueen and then a Dewi Taylor header was pushed over the bar by him. Amazingly, the referee seemed to miss that one as well because he awarded a bye kick. The gap to St Andrews and safety remains 9 points as they also drew. Whitburn have 6 games in hand over them but will need to start converting these leads to victories if they are going to overtake the Fife team. Match report.
