Haddington faced one of their biggest league challenges of the season last Saturday when they travelled to Perth to meet in form Jeanfield Swifts at Riverside Stadium. Two weeks before Jeanfield had beaten SPFL side Elgin City by no fewer than six goals to nil in the Scottish Cup, and the week after dispatched Sauchie by four goals to one in a league match. The home side dominated most of the opening half but the visitors looked comfortable in defence and there were strong hints of offside when Jeanfield broke the deadlock from a corner around the half hour mark. The performance of the officials became a talking point as the match progressed. The Hi Hi’s made a positive start to the second half but failed to create any clear cut opportunities. The introduction of Joe Tait gave them fresh impetus and he almost played in Guy McGarry who was denied by an excellent defensive tackle. Poor defending at a corner midway through the half saw Jeanfield extend their lead against the run of play. Haddington never gave up and they were on the attack in the closing moments when Gary Windram was clearly fouled 25 yards from goal. For some reason the referee chose to ignore the infringement and the home side broke away and scored to give them a rather flattering margin of victory. The Hi Hi’s have no match this Saturday and are back in action on Saturday 25th November when they visit Dundonald Bluebell in the East of Scotland Qualifying Cup.
