Match Report :

A drizzly afternoon in the Scottish capital didn’t dampen Tweedmouth Rangers’ appetite in gaining their third league win in a row.

The first ten minutes was almost played out in the home sides half, as Tweedmouth’s high defensive line kept any threat of United crossing the half way line out. Within that opening period of possession for the visitors, only one clear chance came the way of captain, Regan Graham, as he found himself on the left side of the box unmarked but his clean strike was comfortably saved by Andrew Smith.

The tide turned on Tweedmouth slightly as the hosts found joy down the sides, Gab Peter showing both full backs a clean set of heels on a couple of occasions.

Edinburgh United forced Tweedmouth’s, Niall Frampton into a top save 26 minutes in, tipping over a long range effort that certainly looked goal bound.

Michael Robinson then found himself clear on goal with just the keeper to beat but his decision to loft the ball over Smith ended up being the wrong one.

After some play on the back foot, and with half time approaching Tweedmouth’s Graham caught the defence napping on the left, instead of having another attempt himself he came in side and he found Bloomfield coming in from the right at pace and his effort found the back of the net to take his tally to four, in his EOS debut season.

Tweedmouth Rangers started the second half in control of possession and a second goal would have made the game more comfortable. Unfortunately the chances that came their way were not converted.

The game turned a little scrappy, which suited the home side. Tweedmouth were now camped inside their own half for spells. Any threatening crosses from Utd were well defended by the away side.

Frampton found himself the busier of the keepers in the second 45’ with at least two saves from Utd efforts, which would have found the net without his reactions.

Tweedmouth had to hang on at times but certainly dug in as a team all over the park.

A great three points on the road.
