Penicuik Ath v Bonnyrigg Rose

Bonnyrigg Rose visited Penicuik Park with Penicuik hoping to gain revenge for the 2-0 defeat at Bonnyrigg in November.

Penicuik took the lead in the 36th minute when a Sean Patterson strike was blocked by goalkeeper Paul Grant, but the rebound fell to Scott McCulloch, who stroked the ball home from ten yards to see the Cuikie in at half-time by that narrow advantage.

Three minutes into the second half, a Grant Killin strike went inches wide of the target with Grant scrambling across his goal-line. Bonnyrigg immediately attacked down the right and, following a neat lay-off by Steven Hyslop, Bejaoui had to get low down to his left to save Jon Court’s strike.

In the Rose’s next attack, Bejaoui again had to be alert to save a powerful low shot by Stewart.

Two minutes later, following a corner to Penicuik, McCallum got his head to the ball, but his effort went just wide of the goal.
