St Andrews 4
St Andrews bounced back in style from last week’ 7-0 defeat by Bonnyrigg with Barry Sibanda being the catalyst of their win. He struck his first after three minutes when firing into the top corner from 20 yards. Kieron Sturrock struck a second with three minutes of the half remaining when rounding the keeper. Two minutes later the visitors got a free kick 20 yards out to the right hand side of the box and Sibanda fired in into the top left corner. McMullan was ordered off for the visitors with 30 minutes remaining but they still managed a fourth when a great ball down the right found Sibanda who cut inside to score his hat-trick.

Edinburgh United 1
Dalkeith had plenty of the possession with no return in a first half where the best chance fell to United following a corner kick that resulted in an almighty goalline scramble just before the break. With a draw looking a likely outcome substitute Paul Tansey sent over a cross in the 73rd minute that eluded the United defence to nestle in the bottom corner. United looked to have secured a point five minutes from time when Chris Robertson scored following David Hay’s save from John Armstrong only for Tansey to hit the winner for the visitors a minute later with a brilliant angled strike from the edge of the box. Dalkeith’s Mattie Hunter was red carded for violent conduct after an off-the-ball incident deep into added-on time.
