Easthouses Lily manager Dave McQueenie insists his team has “plenty more in the tank” after he emerged disappointed from his side’s 3-3 draw at Peebles Rovers in the East of Scotland First Division.

It took a late Craig Brown goal for Lily to salvage a point from the match, but McQueenie was frustrated not only at the performance of his side but by the attitude of the hosts.

“I rate Peebles as a good football side but they were a rough side,” said the Lily boss. “They were going over the ball in tackles and going in two-footed – I was a bit disappointed. It was two points dropped but I feel we’ve got more in the tank.”

Phil Alexander handed Peebles the lead before Scott Borthwick converted at the other end to equalise for Lily. In the second half, Rovers’ Dale Richardson and Easthouses’ John Hunter both scored penalties, before Frankie Arthur gave Peebles the lead once more. Brown then snatched a goal in the 85th minute to ensure the match ended all square.

Elsewhere, Michael Smith’s brace helped Hawick Royal Albert to a 3-2 win over neighbours Kelso United, with Ronald Fleming also on target for Royalists. Shane Bonnington and Chris Black were on the mark for Kelso.

East Lothian side Ormiston maintained their fine form with a 2-1 home win over Burntisland Shipyard, with Craig Fisher and Connor Ramage on target for the hosts and Grant Blyth scoring for the Fifers.

Eyemouth United won 2-0 at Duns, with Steven Shennan and Alan Jess (penalty) bagging the goals.

Hibs’ leading scorer Max Todd struck the winner ten minutes from full time in his side’s 1-0 win at Berwick Rangers Reserves.
