Musselburgh dig deep to down Dunbar

Have your say

Dunbar United 3

Musselburgh Athletic 4

Musselburgh had to dig deep against a plucky Dunbar side to take all three points.

Davy McGlynn’s men got off to a great start when Aaron Pontin put them ahead after only five minutes but the lead lasted only until the half 
hour when Dunbar were awarded a penalty which Stuart Robertson converted.

Robertson then put Dunbar in front only a couple of minutes later.

Geoff Jones scored to put Dunbar 3-1 up on 60 minutes and Musselburgh were staring a defeat in the face but dug deep when Andrew Sinclair pulled a goal back in the 80th minute and they levelled when Gary Hamilton scored from a corner when he had all the space in 
the world. Hamilton completed 
a wonderful afternoon by scoring the winner in the last minute.
