Newtown Park

In a very disappointing first half,  Bo’ness just having the better possession but nothing to show in front of goal.
Although not the most entertaining match on the eye the two were sitting on six points
from two matches. The goal difference was the same so someone was going to  lose out on the hundred percent recond.
Anyway back to the game and both defences were showing why they had the best back line in the league. Unfortunately it was the same with forwards or the lack of attempts on target and both need to get that good box player to take some weight of the forward pressing midfield.
Manager Stevie Kerrigan will know what he needs and I am sure he will get the man he needs.
The match came to the interval with both keepers having clean gloves.

The second half started of as it finished but this time the keepers were on hand to save anything worthwhile. Main threat for the BU came through Stuart Hunter and Ross Campbell who has a tidy scoring ability for the start of the season.
The first glimpse on goal came when Campbell thought he had scored only to see the near side official flag for offside.
Bo’ness were now having the lions share of the ball and started to create something near goal and the fans shouting out for that special moment and score.
After just crossing the hour mark Will Snowdon managed to pick the perfect cross which was met nicely for Josh Watt to break the deadlock.
Watt almost made it two as the BU were now watching the Dunipace defence get dragged further back as the United players were getting more confidence and coming up field with as many having a go at goal but it was the solid defence and keeper that kept the BU from doubling the score and the match dried out and Bo’ness getting three points and the only team left to have played three and won three.
Next week Bo’ness travel to Lowland League outfit East Kilbride in another cup tie and this will be the hardest test of the season so far for both players and the travelling support.
