Defensive blunders cost Whitburn dearly

Whitburn's first half performance was good today after the two week break but only had a single goal advantage going into the last 10 minutes thanks to a James Mcateer strike. They had had a number of chances to add to the lead, notably a Gary Brass header that came off the bar, but defensive slackness left Blake Wales free at the back post and he headed Dalkeith level against the run of play. This gave the home side belief and they had a couple chances themselves. The second half again started well for Whitburn and they looked most likely to score until the 25th minute when the ball was lost in midfield and moved quickly to Stewart Adams who made no mistake in finding the bottom corner give Dalkeith the lead. 3 minutes later a short attempted back pass fell to Daryl Devlin and he also found the net from a tight angle having rounded stranded Dougie Horne. Whitburn had a couple of late chances but they were unable to narrow the gap. A hugely disappointing end to a game that had promised so much and keeps us firmly rooted to the relegation area.
