Sauchie Juniors 0
Linlithgow Rose 1
A VIRTUALLY unchanged Linlithgow Rose from the one which dumped local rivals Bo’ness United out of the Fly Emirates Scottish Cup the previous week took a huge step towards securing the East Region Superleague title on Saturday.
The Rose secured the three points in a scrappy game against Sauchie, winning 1-0 thanks to a Gordon Herd goal on the hour mark.
Only Camelon Juniors can now prevent Linlithgow Rose from lifting the title.
However, thoughts of the title go on hold for a fortnight with the Rose again in cup action where they face current Emirates Cup holders Shotts in a double-headed semi-final this Saturday, April 13) and next (April 20).
