Bonnyrigg Rose made it 15 goals in three games with a 4-0 home win over Broughty Athletic which delighted boss Robbie Horn.

All four Bonnyrigg goals came from headers, but Horn was particularly happy about not conceding.

“We played good football, scored good goals and kept a clean sheet,” said Horn. “That was the pleasing aspect of it.

“We now have a squad of players battling for a place in the starting 11. There is competition for places and it’s difficult to keep players happy, but that’s my job.

“It took us a while to get the first goal, but after that we could and should have scored a lot more.”

On a perfect pitch, Bonnyrigg took a deserved lead in the 31st minute when Lewis Turner crossed from the right and Kieron McGachie headed home at the near post.

An Adam Nelson corner was headed home by Dean Hoskins in the 52nd minute. Nelson was again the supplier for the third, crossing for Ruaridh Donaldson to head home.

Donaldson crossed for Fraser McLaren to nod home the fourth 10 minutes from time.

Full-back Donaldson was delighted with his rare goal.

“It’s not often I get on the score sheet and to get one with a header was a surprise. I get pelters in the dressing room because I can’t head the ball, but I’ll be telling them about this one. We struggled to get the first goal, but in the end we should have scored a lot more.”
