Eskvale battle back to win

Having recently confirmed two years of unbeaten home league form, Eskvale were confident they could match the visiting Fidra Lions, a side whom they had flattened earlier in the season.

It wasn’t a great start for the Midlothian men, however, as the visiting team took advantage of some sloppy defending to take the lead early on.

Keith MacNeil made it 2-1 for the home team not long after, again assisted by Pride.

MacNeil showed real skill with a tricky finish at the near post.
