Peebles Rovers 4

PEEBLES left it late to claim another derby scalp on Saturday.

Allan McDonald's team only edged in front of this pulsating match for the first time in the fifth minute of added time.

Improving Tweedmouth showed early on why they are no longer the whipping boys of the East Leagues by racing into a two goal lead inside the opening eight minutes.

The pace and movement of the home team's front three had exposed gaps in the Rovers defence.

But a few adjustments and a 15th minute goal from Greg Kerr settled the nerves.

Peebles began to exert some control in midfield and approaching the half hour Grant Wilson levelled from the penalty spot.

With half time approaching Rangers went back in front with a well-taken finish.

Both teams continued to charge forward at every opportunity in the second half.

And it was a second penalty from Wilson on the hour which drew Peebles level for the second time.

Just five minutes later the home team were also awarded a spot kick after a foul inside the area.

Tom Kerr produced a magnificent save to keep the scores level.

A few injuries and substitutions led to five minutes of added time being played - and with just seconds to go it was Gregor lamb who stroked home the winner.

Peebles Rovers: Kerr, Mackenzie, Gettell, Brown, Forrest, Davidson, Lamb, Smith, Wilson, Kerr & Sterricks.
