The Hi Hi’s knew that they faced a tough match at Millfield last Saturday against an inform Hill of Beath side that were on an impressive run, and so it proved. However Haddington will be annoyed at how they lost all three points after being in a winning position, leading 3-1 with just over twenty minutes to play.

The home side made a bright start and with just minutes played Joe Tait showed great skill on the right to fire a tremendous shot into the back of the net. The Fifers equalised 20 minutes later when Tosh evaded two home defenders and fired past the recalled Dale Cornet. Haddington looked the likelier team to get the next goal and the visiting goalkeeper was called into action on several occasions. Joe Tait struck again just before the interval when he collected a short corner and fired home with the visiting defence expecting a cross. In fact skipper Gabri Auriemma should have doubled the lead in time added on when Gary Windram broke through to set him up, but he took an extra touch when a goal looked a certainty.

In the opening minutes of the second half hesitancy in the home defence ended up with Keir Russell conceding a penalty. Fortunately Love struck the crossbar with the spot kick and the danger was cleared. The home side made the Fifers pay the full price for this miss when minutes later, new signing Tom Davies broke down the right and although his cross eluded Auriemma, Gary Windram took full advantage and netted from eight yards out. This goal set Hill of Beath back and for the next part of the match Haddington looked comfortable on their two goal lead and there seemed to be only one winner. However all this changed when the visitors reduced the deficit with just over twenty minutes remaining. Haddington were on the back foot and some poor defending in the final ten minutes saw all three points cross the Forth.
