Linlithgow Rose CFC lose out to Wanderers

Linlithgow Rose CFC 1

North Edinburgh Wanderers 3

In what was a scrappy game from start to finish due to the blustery conditions and poor playing surface, the Rose succumbed to a 3-1 defeat in the East of Scotland Cup second round to North Edinburgh Wanderers.

The Amateurs went 1-0 up after a neat Scott Ferguson finish, capitalising on some poor defending.

The Rose came close to extending their lead with Liam Grant crashing a header against the woodwork and forcing a fine save from the goalkeeper.

Edinburgh equalised direct from corner after a defensive mix-up and two soft goals after the game had opened up in the last 15 minutes sealed a berth in the next round for the visitors from the capital.
