BU leave local rivals still in relegation trouble with a deserved victory. The BU went into their penultimate league game against local rivals Linlithgow on a high after recent results with our opponents struggling near the bottom of the league but with plenty games in hand it has to be said. The form of late was telling early on as the BU started the better side forcing two good saves back to back from the Rose keeper.
A VIEW FROM THE TERRACE

BU starting 11
Murphy. Gemmell, Snowdon, Gibb & Campbell. Ruari MacLennan, Donnelly & Keast. Sloan, Wright, Strickland. Subs. Al Zubadi, Roddy MacLennan & Scullion. Tierney, Smith & Ritchie.
Into the second half and it began with the visitors having most of the game and they almost went a goal up when a shot came back off the BU crossbar. The first BU sub came when Marty Wright went off for Roddy MacLennan. The home side weren’t long getting back into the game with good play down the far left forcing a corner. It was taken quickly and short to Roddy who came inside beating two men but the cutback was too much for any advancing BU players and Linlithgow cleared.
