Penicuik: Bald, Gallagher, Mackay, Meikle, Leighfield, Riley, Smith, Barr,Walker, Brigain, Killen. Referee: Dougie Potter  Conditions were very blustery as the match kicked off. Glenrothes were first to settle and a couple of chances came their way through Murray and Shaw. Penicuik started to come into the game and both Smith and Brigain might have done better with clear shots on goal from awkward angles. But Glenrothes were causing the Penicuik defence problems, particularly down the right wing and they took the lead via a cross from that direction when JAMIE MURRAY (11mins) finished neatly leaving Bald no chance. Penicuik struck back quickly however when KEITH BARR (15mins) shot from 20+ yards leaving Roberts a spectator. Both teams proceeded to squander changes particularly the Glens who seemed to have left their shooting boots in the pavilion as, despite numerous clear shots, failed to cause keeper Bald much consternation let alone a save. However, on 38 minutes clever work by the Fifers midfield found Shaw through with the goalkeeper to beat when he was flattened by Mackay just as he was about to pull the trigger. MacKay meanwhile received a straight red for his trouble. Again the resultant free kick, in good position, never tested Bald and Penicuik in fact held out to half time fairly comfortably. Half Time: Glenrothes 1 v 1 Penicuik Athletic When the players emerged for the second half Gay had replaced Riley with Leighfield moving to centre half and Walker to left back. Play continued as the first 45 with the deceptive wind causing both sets of players problems. Glenrothes continued to press with Penicuik restricted to counter attacks. Smith was now causing the Glens problems up the right wing as the wind was slightly helping. With 24 minutes of the second half gone a Walker clearance from just inside his own half was cleverly knocked on by both Brigain and Killen leaving MARK SMITH to beat the left back and then keeper Roberts with a clever finish. This was just reward for 10 man Penicuik, indeed you would have been hard pressed to know which side was lacking a player. Shortly after Penicuik took the lead a double penalty claim was turned down by the referee as first Killen and, even more so Brigain seemed to be felled by reckless Glenrothes defending. As the game petered out Penicuik became stronger and may have increased their lead through Brigain, Killen and Smith. Even Gallagher tried a long range shot that wasn't far away. Glenrothes were now playing like a team whose season had finished and they were put out of their misery when the ref blew for full time.  A good all round performance from Penicuik considering the conditions and playing a large part of the game a man short. Result: Glenrothes 1 v 2 Penicuik Athletic
