Another 3 pts moves Duns from the foot of the table

Duns travelled to Biggar on Saturday on what felt like one the coldest days in recent weeks.

Duns started the first half playing into the driving rain and wind creating a few chances but failing to find the net.
It was Biggar who took their only chance of the first half with a cross from the touch line no dealt with the Biggar striker was able to take the ball down a fire a great half volley past the keeper.

Biggar’s lead was short lived with Burns equalising to to make it 1 a piece going into half time

The second half saw Duns dominate the play with Ponton giving the away team and early lead in the second half.

A tap in from old head Keenan gave Duns a 2 goal lead as the wind and rain worsened.

With 60 mins gone Duns subbed some tired legs with Bunyan, Hutchison, Smith, Taylor and Short adding some fresh legs to the fray.

It didnt take long for the subs to make and impact on the game with Hutchison and Taylor adding goals 4 and 5, giving Taylor his first goal for the club on his debut.

Goal of the game came from another sub when Bunyan picked up the ball 25 yards out and rocketed the ball past the Biggar keeper.

After a well ground out first half and a great team performance second half Duns were able to secure another 3 pts which lifted them from the bottom of the table.
