Linlithgow semi-final is abandoned

Have your say

Linlithgow Rose’s Fife & Lothians Cup semi-final with Sauchie was abandoned midway through the second half last night due to a waterlogged pitch.

Rose will travel to Sauchie’s Beechwood Park once more this Saturday for a place in the final against Camelon after referee Jordan Curran ended the match early with the score at 2-2.

David Morrison had given the home side the lead on the strike of half-time, but Rose midfielder Ruari MacLennan levelled two minutes into the second half.

Rose went behind once more on 49 minutes when defender Iain Syme put Sauchie ahead, although their lead last just three minutes as Adam Nelson pegged the home side back once more.
