Leith Athletic 5-1 Duns

Duns travelled to Leith on the back of a good display against Whitehill last week sadly this did not continue, within the half hour the Dingers found themselves 3 goals down with Leith scoring on 12, 18 and 31 minutes. Leith even missed a very soft awarded penalty on 29 minutes. Half time couldn’t come quick enough with the score remaining at 3.0
Second half did not see much improvement with Leith increasing their lead on 53 minutes. Five minutes later Duns made a double substitution with Lee and Pattenden replacing Bullen and Robinson. This change certainly made a difference with several chances being created by the Dingers with good work by Pattenden on the left being fouled in the box, Lauder dispensed the penalty in his usual confident manner, 4.1 Pattenden continued to cause Leith all manner of problems with Lee being more creative in midfield. Again Duns created several chances with shots on target but failed to add to their total. Leith added to their emphatic victory and increase their lead at the top of the league with a 5th goal in 82 minutes. Duns visit league cup holders Leith on Tuesday night. Next Saturday it is King Cup action away against Coldstream
